Plastic corflute posters can now be recycled thanks to a new recycling trial available at the Randwick Recycling Centre.
Randwick City residents can now drop off any plastic ‘corflute’ signs or posters for recycling and recovery as part of trial running until 30 June.
The new service is part of a partnership between Randwick City Council and the Plastic Recycling Hub in Condell Park.
The Plastic Recycling Hub will collect the corflute posters. The corflutes will be chopped and shredded into smaller pieces, at which point some of these pieces can be used by re-manufacturers, the remaining pieces are then processed into pellets or a resin for re-use by other companies that utilise recycled material.
Residents are asked to remove any metal or plastic eyelets, cords or cable ties that may be on the posters before dropping them off.
The new initiative comes just one month after Randwick Council started re-collecting soft plastics at the Recycling Centre. In the first month of the new service, local residents dropped off more than 1.9 tonnes of soft plastic for recycling.
The Randwick Recycling Centre provides a range of recycling services for problem waste including polystyrene, x-ray films, batteries, chemicals and clothing.
The Randwick Recycling Centre is located at 72 Perry Street, Matraville. It’s open Monday to Friday, 6am-2.45pm and the first Saturday of each month, 7.30am-2pm.
If you are interested in learning more about the Recycling Centre, you can book to attend a free tour on Saturday 25 March to mark Earth Hour 2023. Find out more on Council’s website.
