Delays to flexible soft plastics recycling

Published: 29 March 2016

Cardinia Shire Council asks residents to not put plastic bags and other flexible plastic packaging in their recycling bin until they receive an information pack and instructional bags.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

Although Council announced that this option would be available from February, there has been a delay in sourcing specific equipment from overseas to allow this material to be sorted.

Residents will receive an information pack in the mail from Council when all required processes and equipment is operational. In the meantime, most supermarkets accept plastic bags and other flexible plastics for recycling.
