Turning Soft Plastics into new Plastic Products

sp homepage recycling bin sml III.png

Collections have restarted at selected Countdown, The Warehouse and Huckleberry stores in Auckland.

We have produced a video to show you what happens to the soft plastic and the range of products it is being made into by New Zealand processors Future Post and Second Life Plastics.

Both Future Post and 2nd Life Plastics are great examples of Kiwi ingenuity and we are working with them and our members to increase demand for their products. 

To have a sustainable circular economy where waste materials are re-processed into new valuable products and commodities, we need industry, councils and government departments to start buying products which are made from our recycling efforts.

The video also tells you what we CAN and most importantly CAN’T collect. Thank you for being such loyal supporters of soft plastic recycling.

Look out for the soft plastic recycling bin in your Auckland Store
