Great news! You can now recycle soft plastics like crisp packets and bread bags at a Co-op near you. It doesn’t matter where you bought them. Just pop your soft plastics into our recycling units and we’ll do the rest. It means we can all do our bit for the environment.

Clean it. Scrunch it. Co-op it.

Soft plastics recycling is easy. Just follow these three steps:

  • Clean it – First, rinse your packaging out.
  • Scrunch it – Now, scrunch it up tight – if it pings back, it’s a useful indicator it’s soft plastic.
  • Co-op it – Pop it into our soft plastics recycling unit at a Co-op near you.
What are soft plastics?

Soft plastics are lightweight plastics that often cannot be placed in recycling bins at home. Think plastic film lids on yoghurt pots, soft fruit punnets and ready meals, as well as plastic crisp packets, pasta bags and chocolate or biscuit wrappers.

What they’re not are plastic bottles, tubs, pots, trays and caps. If you’re not sure, a simple test is to scrunch it up and if it pings back, it’s a useful indicator it’s soft plastic. See what you can and can’t recycle.
