Scrunch Plastic recognises that soft plastic won't disappear overnight so in the meantime our mission is to divert it from landfill & get it recycled.
This is a wild ride, subscribe to follow the journey and the insider knowledge we learn about the Australian waste industry.
Soft plastics are the plastics you can scrunch, not the plastic in your milk bottles which are hard plastic and can go in the council recycling bin.
Ask yourself, does it scrunch into a ball?
Think rice, chips or pasta packets! Its also cling wrap, bubble wrap, plastic bags, postage bags... you get the idea.
They are extremely hard to recycle in exisiting processes and need their own equipment. Because household soft plastics have been contaminated by food this makes final products even more complicated. Some ideas we are trying are our plant pots.
