Can I recycle something that has no recycling symbol?

Answer:

Very generally speaking, the items you mention are not recyclableThe difficulty would be that the facility that ends up with your recyclables would not be able to tell what the items are made of, so they would have to discard themSandwich baggies are usually made with 4 plastics, which many recycling facilities do not acceptI'm not sure what the shredded cheese bags are made of; different manufacturers would use different types of plastics, but the cheese bags may also be 4'sAt my Recycling Center, we do not accept food wrappers or baggies for that very reasonUnfortunately, not everything is recyclableBut bless you for trying!
