North East Borough residents may now use clear or translucent blue bags for their plastic, glass and aluminum recyclables.

Streets Department Supervisor Mike Skrekla said many households are finding they have enough recyclables to more than fill their recycle containers so using bags may prevent items from blowing away.

 Some stores use blue bags for customer purchases and the translucent blue bags can also be purchased at many stores in the garbage bag aisle.
