Make it recycle ready

Ensure your plastic bags are dry.

Where does plastic bags go next?

They 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 plastic bags 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.


Want to recycle something else?

Search for another item to find out if it can go in your home recycling bin or if it needs to be dropped off somewhere else.
