Please do not put metal cans and metal objects in our soft plastics recycling bin - this can seriously damage the processing plant.
Please check whether your local council accepts hard plastics at the kerbside collection. From 1 February 2024, all councils will collect rigid plastic (#s 1, 2 and 5) at kerbside.
Collect all the soft plastic packaging which you use at home, make sure the bags are clean, empty and dry and drop them into the Soft Plastics Recycling bins at supermarket and other stores.
Please remember we only accept clean, dry and empty soft plastic bags and packaging. Food scraps and liquid will contaminate all the other bags in the bin. Hard plastic and metal objects will damage our processing plant. We do NOT accept compostable plastic bags or plant based plastics. Thank you for your support.
Recycling soft plastic is something you can do.
The Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme website tells you all about plastic bag recycling and plastic wrap recycling, and how to recycle grocery bags and how to recycle bubble wrap.
What do you need to do? Collect all the soft plastic packaging which you use at home, make sure the bags are clean, empty and dry and drop them into the Soft Plastics Recycling bins at supermarkets and other stores.
Look out for the green and white soft plastic recycling bin.
