Plastic Bags and Overwrap have to be separate from all other recyclables
Why? Plastic bags and overwrap are very difficult to separate from other recycling materials. Problems with separation mean that less of the plastic bags and less of the other material can be recycled due to contamination.
Please separate your plastic bags and overwrap from all other recyclables and put in Plastic Bags/ Overwrap (Plastic Film) bin at Nesters and Function Depot Sites. Make sure bags are empty and clean, then stuff bags inside another bag and tie the top.
Plastic bags/overwrap includes: Shopping bags, produce bags for fresh & frozen food, bread bags, overwrap (e.g. for mattresses), outer bags for hygiene products.
