Soft plastics are plastics that can pass the scrunch test!
Only rigid plastics can be recycled through your yellow recycling bin, but rather than put soft plastics in your red landfill bin - consider collecting them and take them to a REDcycle bin at a supermarket near you.
The REDcycle program makes it easy for consumers to keep plastic bags and packaging out of landfill.
The program accepts a wide range of soft plastics, from biscuit packets, bread bags and bubble wrap, to frozen food, dog food and produce bags.
The list of soft plastics that can be recycled through the REDcycle program is huge!
For more information on what you can recycle and where, head to REDcycle.
