Yes. They are taken and turned into new plastic bags and t-shirts and other things. You can't say "put your bags here, we'll recycle them" and not actually recycle them.
I try and remember the canvas bags but when I don't it's plastic but I use it for cat poop and other things mainly trash can liners and what not. If you don't tie your trash up here, it only ends up all over the way our trash trucks are. As for paper, only one store around here even offers it and that's Harris Teeter.
