Did you know that you can recycle soft plastics at the recycling depot at the Waste Management Centre on Bevan Road?
Sort your soft plastics into two categories:
- Plastic bags and overwrap – plastic that is not crinkly and you can poke your thumb through
e.g. plastic bags, toilet paper overwrap, pop can flats overwrap
2. Other flexible plastic packaging – plastic that is crinkly and doesn’t stretch. View a material list.
e.g. cereal bags, chip bags, candy wrappers, stand up pouches, woven and net plastic bags
These plastics cannot be recycled through your curbside container.
