1000 Flowers for the Planet - #55 Recycle Plastics
Every area will be different when it comes to this opportunity for recycling. Plastics in Australia are not recycled as well as in some European countries. It’s important that you check what plastics you can put into your recycling bin/collection for your area, bearing in mind that mindlessly putting out everything made of any type of plastic only creates problems for the recycling plant if they can’t deal with it, and will add to their processing costs – which you will pay for in the long term.
Of course the best action would be to avoid purchasing plastic in the first instance, and thereby have no need to think about recycling it. Most plastic ends up in landfill and we all know now that it doesn’t break down for a very long time.
