Hi Fred

Thank you for your great description and for providing an image with your recycling enquiry.

Plastic strapping can not be recycled in your kerbside recycling bin. The kerbside recycling system is designed to handle your everyday packaging waste like disposable bottles, jars and containers, so other household items are unable to be processed.

Also, packaging strapping would likely get wrapped around other items and machinery at the recovery facility and could potentially damage equipment.

Other recycling opportunities have not been identified, so please dispose of plastic strapping in your general waste bin.

If you happen to find any local recycling or re-use options, we would love to hear about it! Thank you for reaching out to Recycle Mate, please contact us again any time with your recycling enquiries.
