REDCYCLE WEEKLY UPDATE

Hello REDcyclers,

 

Over the last couple of months many of you have expressed that you are holding on to your soft plastics, with the intention to return these to a REDcycle bin when the program is back up and running.

 

Whilst we understand how difficult it is to bring yourselves to dispose of this material, as we mentioned in our initial statements about the pause, for now it’s the only option (unless your local council has advised otherwise). As you can imagine, our priority is to re-establish end market producers, before we can commence the recovery program. If everyone is saving all of their soft plastics throughout this period, that will place immense strain on the program when it recommences.

 

We love your commitment, we love your enthusiasm, and we love that people have kept to the routine of separating their soft plastics. However, for the moment, unfortunately, the material has to go to landfill. We can assure you there will be a solution. We remain committed to working with all stakeholders to make this happen.

about REDcycle

RED Group is a Melbourne-based consulting and recycling organisation who has developed and implemented the REDcycle Program; a recovery initiative for post-consumer soft plastic.

 

Our goal is to make it easy for you to keep your plastic bags and soft plastic packaging out of landfill.

 

The REDcycle Program is true product stewardship model where manufacturers, retailers and consumers are sharing responsibility in creating a sustainable future. See our partners page to see which of Australia’s most-loved brands are on board to reduce the amount of plastic packaging going to landfill.
