It’s more simple than ever to do your part to minimise waste. Take part in the RedCycle Program. Keep your empty bread bags, biscuit packets, frozen food bags,
rice and pasta bags, confectionary packets, plastic shopping bags and old reusable bags out of landfill by taking them in to selected Coles and Woolworths supermarkets instead.

Drop them into your nearest REDcycle collection bin and the RED Group will do the rest. Best part is, this empty packaging can them be recycled and made into new products. Watch the above video to gain a better understanding of the ‘Pull Through Effect’.
