Laidlaw used to have the contract to collect curb-side recycling in Winnipeg. That was when we had blue boxes. A different company got the contract, then we got the big bins. Laidlaw hand sorted recyclables at the curb-side into glass, plastic, metal, and paper. Now they just dump everything into a garbage truck, and take it to a depot where automated equipment sorts it. That automated equipment has limits. Plastic bags will clog the machine, that's why the can't accept plastic film of any sort. No grocery bags, garbage bags, vegetable bags, etc.

One issue is material. Plastic grocery bags are made of a material that can't be easily melted to form a new product. Bags dropped off for "recycling" are actually reused. Food banks get those bags, they can't afford to buy new ones. I'm sure there are other uses.
