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.

Plastic Bags

Ronald from Maxron Associates

I was pretty grumpy when our nanny state decided to tell me I cant have plastic bags from my dairy or takeaway. Mainly because I had to go and buy plastic bags for my home rubbish bins, when I used to use the bag I got from the shop. Last night I went for takeaways and was given plastic bags to carry it home. I said I thought you couldn't do this any more, she replied no its ok if the bag doesn't have handles. Go figure, plastic bags with handles are more dangerous than plastic bags without handles who'd have thought. Mind you I'm happy again because guess where they fit, you got it, in my rubbish bin under the sink, outstanding.
