The Canowindra CWA are launching a new service for locals to recycle their unwanted soft plastics. Specially labelled collection bins will be located at Foodworks in Gaskill St. People can bring along their unwanted soft plastics to place into these bins.
The launch will be held at 10am this Friday 16th November at Foodworks in Gaskill St. The aim of this project is to drastically reduce the amount of plastic ending up in landfill.
Soft plastics that can be recycled include:
• Bread bags
• Biscuit packet wrappers
• Paper goods packaging
• Pasta and rice bags
• Frozen Vegie bags
• Plastic bags
• Cereal box liners
It’s soft plastic if it can be scrunched into a ball! Plastic bottles, plastic containers and rigid plastic trays CANNOT be recycled in these bins. No general waste is to go into these bins!
