Make it recycle ready

  • cut them into A3 size to make sure they fit. Large pieces of bubble wrap are too bulky to be placed in soft plastic bins at supermarkets.
  • ensure the bubble wrap is dry.

Where does bubble wrap go next?

It will be:

  1. collected by REDcycle.
  2. taken to REDcycle facilities for processing.
  3. taken to manufacturing facilities to be turned into new recycled products.

Why can’t bubble wrap go in my recycling bin?

Current recycling sorting facilities aren’t equipped to sort these softer types of plastic and they can get caught in equipment. This slows down the sorting lines and can even stop the equipment for periods of time.
