Plastics recycling

Hard plastics

Most hard plastic containers can go in your kerbside recycling bin. For more information contact your council.

Search for your council to see their waste and recycling services

Soft plastics

Soft plastics (i.e. plastics that don’t spring back into shape when crushed) can be recycled at Coles and Woolworths. These stores provide soft plastic recycling bins for customers to recycle bread bags, pasta bags, cereal bags, lolly bags, frozen food bags, carry bags, fresh produce bags and reusable ‘green’ bags. Check the RED Cycle soft plastic drop off locator to find your nearest participating store.

The plastic from these bins is collected by RED Group and recycled into a range of products including bench seats for schools and kindergartens by Replas and asphalt road base by Close the Loop.
