SOFT PLASTIC RECYCLING

Wednesday, February 24, 2021

We have now introduced some new soft plastic recycling bins with REDcycle.  REDcycle collects soft plastics for recycling that turns recycled plastic into useful items like bollards, park benches/tables, decking, fencing and garden products (https://www.replas.com.au/ ).

 

Common items at work that are eligible for REDcycle are:

 

  • Plastic bags that patients return monitors in
  • Plastic wrap from linen
  • Chip and cracker packers (silver lined)
  • The outside packet from biscuits
  • Chocolate wrappers
  • Document sleeves
  • Zip lock bags
  • Clean-ish Glad wrap

You can find a comprehensive list of what CAN and CAN’T go into these bins here https://www.redcycle.net.au/what-to-redcycle/

 

If you are looking to do this at home, Woolies or Coles have collection points normally live near the end of the checkouts.
