What about "biodegradable" plastic wrapping that is not marked as "plant based" or "compostable"?
I've been wondering about the wrapping on twining tea bags?
In our classroom we have changed from one large bin that took everything to a soft plastic, a hard plastic, a paper and card, a compost and one tiny little waste bin that only gets half full each day (about 5 litres). The kids sort as they go and even bring their rubbish in from recess in their pockets to sort properly, How is that for learning and doing!! so proud of them
As a teacher, these bins need to be placed in schools. Think of all those wrappers being sent to landfill! Can someone please look into this?
I also don't think many people are aware these products are able to be recycled..maybe more education is required.
I use daily contact lenses.. at the moment I'm putting the trays in a laundry detergent bottle which then goes to hard plastic when full (they are PP05 in the triangle) the plastic foil I'm putting in with the soft plastics like shopping bags to take to the redcycle bin at Coles.. My contact lenses go to the bin. Lol am I doing it right?
I've heard that baby food pouches can go I the redcycling bins, but they would be near impossible to clean and get dry. So, wondering what the go is with these? Thanks!
Sorry about the bad pic! Lindt bag. Paper on the inside but kind of has a plastic coating on the outside. Roadside recycling?
Rice cracker packets that divide them into rows. Some are softer plastic than others. We've been putting it in soft plastics....🤔
I noticed Kesab provides tours for schools but what about families?
Is there a list somewhere of every type of plastic that can go in the Coles bin?
I know this isn't what you're talking about in the post but I'm wondering if this can go into the recycling bin. Its from the chemist and its used foe medicine that needs to be refrigerated.
The ones with the silver lining like lcm packets
How about the plastic that oranges come in?
Empty medication strips? Foil(?) + plastic...
? Foil inside
I know this isn't the same as what you're talking about in the post but still would like to know which bin it goes into. Its from the chemist and used for medicine that needs to be refrigeration. Paper on the inside but foil outside.
What were we wondering about the other day Malita Wilkinson ? I can't remember!
Bec Stevens and Cindy Kakoschke got any photos of our tim tam and ricw cracker trays?
Feeling unsure about your kerbside organics bin? Here are 10 items that can go straight in - 1. Eggshells 2. Stale breads, bikkies, chips and crackers 3. Soiled Cardboard (pizza boxes) 4. Meat 5. Tissues and paper towel 6. Newspaper 7. Coffee grind, tea bags and tea leaves 8. Pet hair 9. Animal waste (not in plastic) 10. Veggie and fruit scraps
*Please remember to check the regulations of your local council as this is a general guide. Use the Recycle Right website when unsure - bit.ly/2pXnfR7... See MoreSee Less
Wldn't Newspapers go in the nrml recyclin bin wit mags/pamphlets, etc?
I stopped putting food in the green bin because of the smell and the flies- as the council only collects it once a fortnight. I looked in the supermarkets for compostable bags to solve the smell problem, and was annoyed to find they sold only the degradable and not the compostable ones 😠
Handy info! Tried the Recycle Right link but when I put my suburb in nothing happens. Just thought I would pass that on.
Hi...I always get mixed feedback about cat waste and whether the actual 'litter' can be put into compost?
Jade N Josh Reynolds this is saying you can put food in green bin
stale bread i always put out for the birds and they love it. don't know if i should but they eat it anyway
Can animal waste go straight into the bin?
VERY GOOD ADVICE.
Pizza boxes?! That's so good if true Natasha Kendal Evele Kristyan Alyssa Evele Mairead Doyle
Mikaela Boccaccio 💃🏻💃🏻
So that's what to do with pizza boxes! Thanks for the tip.
Yvonne Peterson- see you CAN put paper towels and tissues in your green bin!
Tracy Norris are you filling up your green bin with animal waste 😂
Jamie, Chris Murphy...
Lots we didn't know could go in the bins!! 😳🤔
You were all correct! These aerosol cans can go in the recycling bin! Make sure the cans are empty though!
yellow. is it true according to a recent tv show war on waste that all plastic bags deposited in supermarkets to be recycled goes to wast and is NOT RECYCLED as shown with a gps??? are we wasting our time saving plastic??
I didn't realise,especially about the asthma inhalers. So glad I found this page. 😊
That is a very good question - I don't buy any of the above item, but I would still like to know KESAB.
I would like know. I would have thought normal bin. Not that I buy aerosol products because of the fumes.
recycle BUT only if theyre empty. the same goes for asthma inhalers.
