Event details...

Establish a base

Decide where you're going to base your REDcycle drop-off area. You'll need a container that you can store your streets recyclables in - in an area that is easily accessible by your neighbours.

Let your community know (via your WhatsApp group) where the drop off is, details regarding what they can/can't recycle, and what day you'll take the recyclables to a REDcycle drop off point.

HINT: If using the above link to find your closest drop off point, please enter your SUBURB NAME (not postcode) to search.

Drop off your REDcycling

Drop your soft plastics into your nearest REDcycle collection bin.

There are participating supermarkets all around Australia.

Find the REDcycle drop off point nearest to you.

You're reducing landfill

Get your community together to celebrate that you are now a part of the REDcycle program that's collected enough pieces of soft post-consumer packaging to circle the world over 5.5 times*.

That’s over 900 million pieces of plastic that’ll never end up in landfill, on our beaches or in our waterways.

*(Assuming an average size of 25 cm per item, we’ve collected approximately 200 million metres of plastic packaging laid end to end. The circumference of the world is 40,075 km) - source https://redcycle.net.au/faqs/

REDCycle



RED Group is a Melbourne-based consulting and recycling organisation who has developed and implemented the REDcycle Program; a recovery initiative for post-consumer soft plastic.

They bring the collected plastic back to their facility for initial processing, then it is delivered to their Australian manufacturing partners who utilise recovered material to produce a range of hundreds of recycled plastic products.

Read about where the plastic goes on REDcycle's website.
