Soft plastic recycling bins are back

Paul Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours, soft plastic recycling bins are coming back.

The Love NZ Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme, which was suspended in 2018, has returned to Auckland and Hamilton and, as of October, will be back in Wellington too.

It can get confusing trying to keep track of what to recycle, what not to recycle, and what's just rubbish.

Here's what you can and can't put in soft plastic recycling bins.

Will ensure your voice is heard

Damian Light

I'm standing to be your councillor in the upcoming election because I love Auckland. Our city is a great place to live but we need more passion, ambition and leadership to make it everything it could be.

For over a decade I’ve worked as a problem solver for large organisations, helping them improve outcomes for customers, staff and shareholders. I want to use my skills, experience and love for our city to improve Auckland for everyone. I will fight for proper investment in East Auckland, improve transport, preserve our environment and ensure our communities have a strong voice.

You can contact me anytime on Neighbourly, Facebook, mobile (022 543 7601) or via my website.

With your support, I will provide the vision and leadership to tackle the tough issues, put in the hard work and ensure the people of East Auckland are heard at the council table.
