Soft plastics recycling

Posted on Monday 28 August 2023

Mosman residents can now help prevent soft plastics from going to waste by signing up to a new free recycling program. 

The 12-month trial, which is the first kerbside collection of soft plastics in Sydney, will enable participants to recycle soft plastics, such as plastic bags and food wrappers, by tying and scanning a specially provided tag around their bagged items before placing them in the yellow recycling bin. 

Through Council’s partnership with recycler Curby, the materials will be reprocessed on the NSW mid-north coast and turned into fence posts to be used predominantly on farms. 

Up to 3,000 Mosman residents can participate in the initial trial program by downloading and registering on the free Curby app by visiting
