How much of your rubbish is packaging?
The packet from the crackers, from the muesli, from the bread, from the sugar, from the pasta…….the list goes on….
These packets are soft plastics, and they can be recycled. They can’t go in your recycling bin so it requires a tiny bit of extra effort, but it can be done!
There are soft plastic recycling drop off points around town, you just need to find out where they are in your town. Here in Cambridge there are three spots I know of, These should be the same for most New Zealand towns/cities.
Cnr Queen and Empire Streets, Cambridge
