I knew about the bins at the supermarkets but I didn't know it was called redcycle.

I know that both Coles and Woolworths have the redcycle. I do think their plastics collected is used to make stuff, including things like park type benches (unlike the other recycled stuff via council pickups).

For those who don't know, red-cycle is a supermarket thing - I think maybe only Coles at present - where you can return all your soft plastics (chip packets, biscuit packets, plastic bags, whatever you can scrunch up) into a red bin at the front of the store and they will recycle it into new packaging. They're almost always overflowing, so having a bag to put your other wrapping in is a good plan.

Does it really? Are all these stories in the news and current affairs on TV about warehouses full of plastic rubbish and alleged "recyclables" now being refused entry into Malaysia and China (notwithstanding contracts signed and payments made) just furphies, then?
