More and more businesses are actively taking steps to reduce waste and recycle more.

If you were to look inside your bins, you may notice that most of the content is soft plastic packaging. This is the flexible type of plastic that can be scrunched in your hand and includes things like plastic bags, chip packets, postage bags, bubble wrap and pallet wrap.

Soft plastic cannot be recycled in your kerbside recycling bins. It becomes caught in the sorting equipment and can shut the facility down. This means that much of the soft plastic we use ends up in landfill. However, there are options for reducing and recycling this waste stream.

Have you wondered, how can our organisation recycle soft plastic? What equipment will I need? What things can and can’t be recycled? Where can I recycle it? And, how will I inspire my employees to reduce and recycle soft plastic? Then you’re in the right place.

The Plastic Police® Starter Pack has been designed to help businesses set up and run a successful soft plastic recycling and reduction program. It also helps businesses understand the role they can play in the circular economy and buying back Australian manufactured products made from recycled plastic.


Introducing the Plastic Police® Starter Pack

The Plastic Police® Starter Pack helps organisations tackle soft plastic waste head on. Simply set up your recycling station and follow the steps to educate staff, reduce soft plastic use, start recycling and repurchase products containing recycled soft plastic. Different recycling options are available depending on your organisation’s size, type of soft plastic waste generated and location.

The Pack contains everything an organisation needs to start reducing and recycling soft plastic.
