Texas has an extensive annual survey of cities regarding recycling and
composting activities, but we do not ask them to specify kraft vs. other
kinds of bags they accept. I suspect we are typical of other states. I
don't know of any national survey that would have an adequate
response rate to give you a complete list of city composting programs
that are kraft bag users.

Your most direct route to the data you seek might be to canvass the
manufacturers of kraft lawn/leaf bags and ask them for references to
the cities that have contracted for bulk purchases.
