In addition to shopping bags, these stores accept other plastic bags, such as clean, dry produce bags, bread bags, sandwich bags, and more. Zoots will take back the plastic used to cover their dry cleaning. Better than recycling bags, of course, is reusing bags or using reusable Cloth shopping bags. It is notoriously difficult, even for those with the best of intentions, to remember to bring reusable bags on a shopping trip.
Here are some tips to help you remember: - Write on your shopping list "remember to bring bags." - Hang cloth bags on your kitchen door. - Use a cloth bag to hold deposit bottles and cans, that way you will have at least 1 cloth bag with you when you get to the store. - Tape a reminder on your dashboard. - Don't get discouraged when you keep forgetting your bags. Keep trying.

To obtain a wheeled 64-gallon recycling toter, send a check for $50 payable to Westford Recycling Commission, 55 Main Street. A member of the Commission will contact you and let you know when and where to pick up your toter.
Several years ago, the Town's recycling contractor, IPR, distributed free toters to about 2000 Westford households. There are currently 800 families on the free toter waiting list and no commitment from IPR to purchase more. Buying your own is the best bet.
