Soft plastics

Soft Plastics cannot be accepted in Council’s kerbside recycling bins, as this material gets caught in the machinery at the materials recycling facility (MRF) and prevents the recycling plant from running efficiently.

Where can I take my soft plastics for recycling?

You can easily recycle your soft plastics with REDcycle at convenient drop off locations around the country. To find your closest soft plastics drop off location, visit the REDCycle ‘Where to” page and type in your suburb. Visit the REDCycle website for a comprehensive list of what to put in the REDCycle bins.

You can also collect soft plastics and bring them to a council Problem Waste Drop Off Event for recycling.
