Soft Plastics Recycling Scheme

Our Council, in collaboration with local businesses and the The Packaging Forum, launched our soft plastics recycling scheme in 2022.

This scheme promotes soft plastic recycling using community bins located throughout our district. The recycled soft plastic will then be turned into fence posts or building materials.
