Roll ’n’ Recycle® allows semi-rigid plastic packaging to be placed in your recycle bin!

About

Welcome to the Home of Roll ‘n’ Recycle® where you will find everything you need to know about recycling plastic pouches and bags that carry the unique Roll ‘n’ Recycle® Mark. We are so pleased you came to visit!

Let’s make a BIG difference together.


The Roll ‘n’ Recycle® Mark explains when and how a plastic pouch can be recycled at kerbside (your household recycling bin).

Plastic pouches that do not include the Roll ‘n’ Recycle® Mark may be recyclable at drop-off bins at the front of the major retail stores. Please check the REDcycle website for information about this program in Australia and New Zealand.

This one is self-explanatory. An adult, child, pet or even a favourable gust of wind can take it, just make sure it gets into the recycling bin.

Do you know what you just did? You just turned a flat “two dimensional” piece of packaging into a “three dimensional” shape. This means it can be sorted correctly at a facility once picked up and recycled.
