Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is teaming up with grocers to help recycle plastic bags.

The Department's Division of Recycling and Litter Prevention announced Tuesday that it was launching a statewide campaign with the Ohio Grocers Association.

The association plans to provide recycling bins at retail locations to collect plastic from shoppers as well as shrink-wrap from grocery products.

ODNR Director Sean Logan says the project saves money as well as resources.

Grocers Association President Tom Jackson says the effort will help prevent the government from telling stores how they must bag groceries.
