Recycling

Other recycling options

We may not be able to process all of your recyclables, but there are a range of organisations that can help.

Recycling soft plastic

Soft plastic is any plastic item that you can scrunch into a ball in your hand. You can drop your soft plastics at a REDcycle collection point, located at participating supermarkets. Anything REDcycle collects is recycled into new products for schools and the community.

For information about the nearest collection points and what you can drop off, visit the REDcycle website.
