Consider reuse before disposal.

Plastic mailers are not recyclable curbside, so should be put in the landfill bin. Some stores still offer plastic film recycling drop-off bins, but in many cases, the material is too contaminated to be processed and thus landfilled. When you can, try to avoid the packaging in the first place by shopping locally or buying secondhand.
