... DISPOSING OF PLASTIC BAGS
Disposing of plastic bags in the Recycle Bin can inhibit the contents from being accessed for separation and resource recovery. It can also damage recycling machinery and get tangled during the mechanical sorting process.
Plastic bags placed in garden Organics Bins contaminate this waste stream and any compost produced from it.
YOU CAN ...
- Use the Recycle Bin at Supermarkets (clean bags only).
- Use alternatives such as fabric bags when shopping.
- Separate "wet" and "dry" rubbish into two bins, thereby using only one liner (for wet rubbish).
- Dispose of plastic bags in household garbage bin.
