A 360-degree circular economy solution for soft plastics

Plastic Police® is much more than just a collection and recycling service

We educate, engage and inspire organisations to be part of the solution by rethinking, better managing and reducing soft plastic waste, so together we can create a more sustainable future.

Soft plastics collected through Plastic Police® are manufactured into a range of products by our Australian-based processing partners for participating organisations to purchase back, enabling them to close the loop on what is collected.

  1. Educate & Engage: We educate, engage and inspire organisations reduce soft plastic waste.
  2. Collect: Set up a soft plastics recycling station within your organisation.
  3. Recycle: Soft plastics are manufactured into products such as asphalt and furniture.
  4. Close the loop: Participating organisations purchase products to offset the soft plastics collected.

If you can scrunch it, you can save it!

Soft plastics are plastics that can be scrunched in your hand.

Household generated soft plastics include plastic bags, bread bags, bubble wrap, chip packets, snack wrappers, postage bags and cling wrap. Business generated soft plastics include product packaging, shrink wrap, pallet wrap and builder’s sheeting. Soft plastics are recycled into new and useful products for organisations and communities.
