All plastic packaging, including soft, can now be disposed in your household’s recycling bin after it is “clean, dry, and loose.”
This is a big change as rigid plastics could not be placed in your green bin in the recent past.
It’s a result technology upgrades at Irish recycling centres.
These centres will collect any plastics not suitable for recycling and separate them. They then use the material to create Solid Recovered Fuel. It can be used as a replacement for fossil fuels at cement furnaces.
Here’s a guideline on what you can and cannot put in your recyclable bin.
You can place what you like in the household recycling bin
- Soft plastics – All plastic packaging that includes bubble wrap, bread wrappers (breakfast cereal bags), frozen food bags (6-pack rings) and carrier bags
- Rigid Plastics – e.g. bottles, trays, yoghurt pots, biscuit trays, takeaway containers
- Pizza boxes – even though they have been used, you need to dispose of any remaining crusts and scraps in your food waste bin
- Crisp packets – these are not recyclable if stained, but can be recycled and used for solid recovered fuel.
What you shouldn’t put in the recycle bin
- Food waste – should be put in your food waste/compost container, if there is one
- Empty aerosol cans should be brought to the nearest civic amenity site. If that is not possible, you can also put them in your general waste bin.
- Battery / bulb – must be brought to a local dropoff point
- Glass – bring it to your local bottle store
- Garden waste – can go into the food waste box
- Clothes can be brought to a clothing bank, charity shop or textile recycling centre.
- Pringles tube – can be put in general refuse, but the lid should go in the recycling bin
- Reusable nappies and wipes
- Electrical items
- Kitchen cloths
- Recycled paper towels
- Matches used
