Get a reusable bag
You can not recycle plastic bags, instead get yourself a reusable bag so that you will not have to worry about carrying your necessities.

Recycling statistics for Hampshire and Sussex

Havant Friends of the Earth member, John Auric has compiled a table on recycling rates in some Hampshire districts plus Hampshire County Council and neighbouring authorities. Eastleigh tops the list of the recyclers while Portsmouth, Southampton and perhaps surprisingly Brighton, with its Green Party Council are at the bottom.

But like most stats there are special factors that make comparisons individual. Hampshire County Council likes to boast that  it diverts the highest fraction of its waste stream away from landfill but forgets to mention that it also incinerates more of its waste than many other authorities. John notes that the national average for recycling was 44.2% in 2013 which puts Hampshire mostly below average.
