Corpus Christi's solid waste services have debuted their latest offender in the city-wide "Recycle Right" campaign, "Drastic Plastic."

This is the fourth character in the "Recycling Bin's Dirty Dozen" used to teach the public about the correct way to recycle. City waste says when placed in the blue recycling cart, plastic bags can contaminate other good recyclables.

You can take clean and dry plastic bags to drop off boxes at HEB, Walmart, Target and the first floor of Corpus Christi's city hall.
