Recycling of Soft Plastics (not available through council services)

Due to the sorting process and the need to reduce contamination in our recyclables, it is not currently possible for soft plastics to be included in the recycling bin collection.

They can cause issues in the sorting process and will be sent to landfill once removed.

Kerbside recycling bins are audited regularly across the municipality as part of our ongoing education campaign.

If items such as soft plastics and other non-recyclable items are identified, a reminder notice, about what items are acceptable to put out for collection will be left in the letterbox for education purposes. But soft plastics should never be put in the recycling bin.

We will continue to work with our recycling contractor, Visy, and the recycling industry to improve technologies used in sorting facilities, so we can accommodate this in the future.

We encourage all residents to collect their soft plastics and drop them at their local supermarket if they have a collection bin. This allows organisations to recycle the soft plastics and keep them away from landfill. 

While you can't put soft plastics into your recycling bin, you can take soft (scrunch-able) plastic bags and plastic packaging to participating supermarkets.
