We've partnered up with Terracycle (the company that recycles everything) to become a collection hub. We always recommend reusable alternatives first or avoiding or reusing single use items, however we understand that this isn't always the case and going zero waste is a step by step journey.
This is why we'd like to spread the word and make it easier for our customers to recycle the following disposable products (Coffee capsules, disposable razors, bread closure tags, dental products, cleaning products, and contact lenses). We've also made zero waste suggestions for when you are ready to make the switch. ♡
Please note:Paper & Cardboard packaging is recyclable through your kerbside recycling bin. So please don't include these in your drop offs.
What happens to razors?
The razors and packaging are broken down and separated by their materials. Plastics are cleaned and made into pellets to create new products. Metals are sent for smelting and conversion into new products.
Accepted waste:All silicone products from the go for zero brand
Silicone Baking Mats
Silicone Food Covers
Silicone Food Pouches
We expect the above silicone products to last you many many years. However, in the unlikely event that your product is worn out, please don't throw it in the bin! Bring them to our warehouse and we'll send them off to be given a second life through Terracycle. Our new warehouse address is 2/8 Tectonic Crescent, Kunda Park (yes we've moved from Moffat Beach!). If you don't live locally, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will discuss the best option for postage.
Please remove labels from tags as they contaminate the waste stream
What happens to the bread tags?
Bread closure tags are cleaned and melted into hard plastics that are remoulded to make new recycled into bowls, boards, coasters and door knobs in South Australia. These products are sold to fund new wheelchairs for people in South Africa. Aussie Bread Tags For Wheelchairsrecycle 200kg of bread tags a month, and have recycled 3381kg of bread tags to date!
