If your office or kids school doesn't have any compost or organics collection option, think about bringing your scraps home to put in your green bin, home compost or feed to the chooks! ... See MoreSee Less
Confused about straws. I recently heard you can't recycle them but thought you could if they were placed into an empty milk container with lid on (mixed plastics)? Eg small fruit box straws?
Almost everything 😂
But lucky I have my trusty sister Crystal Lee Burgess who used to work for KESAB to help me 😌
For me it would be my toothbrush head on my electric toothbrush. Is it recyclable?
The black (meat or fruit) trays.
This toothbrush claim to be biodegradable made of corn scratch... so green bin without head?
-Plastic cotton tips..... It’s a bit tricky to remove the cotton and then put it in the milk cartoon!
Bamboo cotton tips..... Can they be put it the green bin? Cotton grows so I assume they can? For no we’ve been putting them to landfill. We only buy bamboo ones from eBay now but still have plastic ones.
-Those plastic packages like the ones we had the other night the taco seasoning came in, it’s almost like it has tinfoil in it too! How do we tell it’s a mix? Can you still REDcycle it?
Oh and one more thing- when you have spray bottles or pump bottles and the pump/lid part has metal springs inside!!!! I try so hard to get them out.... sometimes I just snap off whatever plastic I can to recycle and the rest goes in the bin. Could you just recycle it and they sort it out? Or is there anyway to ‘dissect’ it?? Lol.
Oh my god, what does one do with Foil Plastic? The Manufacturers of these Foil Plastic bags should reconsider their packaging. If it goes to Landfill, shame on them.
And the bean coffee bags are landfill right?
I don't understand what the numbers mean within the recycling symbol on packaging
Still confused about meat trays
What is the bag made of - I know this feeling when it comes to recycling.Have you found out yet what to do with the bag?
we buy coffee ground & take the bag back for refills. People in my house though always leave kids on jars...
Tetra packs? The ones that stock or almond milk come packaged in?
Those coles minis packets are landfill then I guess? I was hoping just coloured soft plastic 😔
The plastic trays that rice crackers and biscuits sit in.
The mesh bags you can get oranges in...?
Can I put dog poo (picked up with paper) in my green bin? I live in Charles Sturt council area
