Tui have joined the soft plastics recycling scheme. Our fertiliser, lawn seed and birdseed bags are eligible for recycling at the soft plastics recycling drop off points. Read on to find out more.
We are now a member of the soft plastics recycling scheme. Our fertiliser, lawn seed and birdseed bags are eligible for recycling at the soft plastics recycling drop off points. Drop off points can be found here.
We will gradually update our packaging to include the soft plastic recycling scheme logo, to make people aware of the scheme. In the mean time you can start dropping off empty, clean and dry packaging at the drop off points.
The soft plastic recycling scheme has recycled over 15 million bags and wrappers since relaunch in April 2019. They are recycled into fence posts and ducting, in NZ, you can find out more information here.
At this stage our growing media and compost bags are not eligible for the scheme, however we will continue to work with our suppliers on trialing more sustainable options for our packaging.
If you would like to check whether the Tui packaging you have can be recycled through this scheme, please feel free to get in touch with us. Please take care to make sure any packaging dropped off for recycling is empty, clean and dry.
Thank you for your support with this initiative, and we will continue to work on improving the sustainability of our packaging.
