At my work we receive a lot of Ziploc bags of all sizes with parts in them. Can we recycle them? We also get parts very thick plastic bags, about 9 x 12. Can we recycle them? Please help, it kills me to throw these away. Thank you.

Gosh, don't throw them away. There are many places that would put them to good use for example I use many plastic bags in our church thrift shop. You could also put them on Free Cycle, I'm sure someone will grab them.
Keep photos, patterns, dry goods, craft supplies, medicines, camping gear and so much more in them. If you can't take them home, then yes, donate them to a school or church, the local shelter or thrift shop.
Check your local grocery store...some have recycling bins. Or, if your city recycles, call and ask if they accept plastic bags.
I have a dog and have to BUY zip lock bags to collect the droppings in on our walks. Ask your dog owner friends if they want the free bags, or the local vet or animal shelter. I would love it if someone would give me these bags for free!
