Soft plastic recycling advice

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:35 pm on 4 May 2021

Yesterday we spoke to Gina Dempster from Wastebusters about contaminated household recycling and we learnt a lot about the do's and dont's for hard plastics and glass. But what do we do about our soft plastics? What even is a soft plastic? Lyn Mayes is the Manager of the Packaging Forum's Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme and she joins Jesse to explain. 

The soft plastic recycling scheme, run by the Packaging Forum, has been operating since 2015 and now covers about 70 percent of the country.
