Statewide – Recycling Makes Cents.

No need to feel guilty about a sneaky Easter egg or two because you can recycle the foil!

Alfoil is a very valuable resource which can be recycled but not in small individual pieces.

If you scrunch the foil together in a ball (roughly fist sized), the alfoil can be recycled in the yellow lidded kerbside recycling bin.

Why does it have to be in this size/ shape? So staff at the Material Recovery Facilities are able to grab it from the fast moving conveyor belts!

What about hairdressing alfoil used for tinting hair? Does it need washing? Can it go in normal recycling?

I would also like to know if other foils can be recycled this way too ???

The yowie eggs are made of a type of plastic that looks like alfoil. Pity they aren't all alfoil so they can be recycled properly

Is this the case with all foil ??
