Hi Ethan

Thank you for your recycling enquiry. It was a great question, so it has been added as an item of interest to be included in Recycle Mate’s item library.

Silicone baking mats and ice cube trays etc. can not be disposed of 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.

If your silicone baking items are in good condition that’s suitable for resale use Recycle Mate to find a charity shop or other location nearby accepting donations.

If your silicone items are not in good condition they will need to be placed in your general waste bin.

I hope this helps. Thank you for your recycling enquiry. Every question helps build a stronger platform for providing better recycling solutions in Australia.
