When you get rid of packaging thoughtfully not only is it better for the environment, it can be reused to create new products.
Paper and Cardboard (including Honeycomb Cardboard) - Flatten your cardboard boxes or rip them up before placing them in your recycling bin in order to save space. You don’t need to worry about removing any tape or labels from your cardboard boxes. They will be removed in the recycling process.
Soft plastic packaging - While these are recyclable, In Australia, soft plastic packaging can’t be recycled through most kerbside recycling services. You can recycle soft plastics through the REDcycle bins found at Coles and some Woolworths stores.
Woven Polypropylene material / bags and Bubble wrap (large sheets cut into A3 size pieces) - The REDcycle program makes it easy for you to recycle your soft plastics - simply gather together all your scrunchables and drop them into a collection bin at participating supermarkets.
