Plastics

Types of plastic and where it goes

Some plastics can go into your recycling bin at home. Other low-quality plastics cannot be recycled and go into your general waste bin. Soft plastics can be taken to the Eaglehawk Recycle Shop, or the Strathfieldsaye, Goornong or Heathcote transfer stations. 

Please note: you can no longer put plastic takeaway food containers or UHT/Tetra Pak milk and juice containers in your recycling bin.
