Soft plastic recycling update

The REDcycle scheme is no longer operational. Unfortunately, this means that unless you are in an area where kerbside soft plastic recycling is trialing, then there is no collection of soft plastics available for customers at the present time. Sanitarium is a foundation supporter of the Australian Food and Grocery Council’s National Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme (NPRS). The NPRS project is designing Australia’s largest industry-led plastics recycling scheme and currently has kerbside collection trials underway. In the meantime, customers not in the NPRS trial areas are advised to dispose of their soft plastics in the landfill bin. Find out more about the NPRS here.

What should people do with their soft plastic now?

If you are not in an area with Curby or other kerbside soft plastic recycling trial options, for the short term, please place soft plastic in the rubbish. Do not put soft plastic in your home kerbside recycling bin as it is not recyclable in that system.

We understand that this may be very disappointing for our customers. Sanitarium remain committed to our packaging goal of 100% of our packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.
