What do I do with my soft plastic in terms of recycling?

Soft Plastics such as plastic bags, cling wrap and chip packets currently cannot be recycled within the City of Kalamunda’s waste system. Until a soft plastic recycling system is established there are many alternatives that can be used. These include:

  • Refuse – Instead of using single use plastic bags invest in reusable shopping bags such as Onya bag or Canvas bags
  • REDcycle – offers recycling for soft plastics through drop off locations such as Coles. You can collect soft plastics such as chocolate wrappers, chip packets and bubble wrap.

If you are wondering what to do with any items you no longer need, why not do a garage Sale. Why not join the Garage Sale Trail.
