Did you know? Recycling aluminium saves 95% of the energy required to produce Aluminium from raw materials. It is also the most valuable material to recycle!
Thanks to the 10 cent refund, South Ozzie’s are great at recycling aluminium cans, but did you know that you can also recycle aluminium foil?
Unwrap, gather, scrunch and pop!
Gather your easter egg wrappers together, scrunch them into the size of a small fist or medium size Easter egg, then pop them in the yellow lidded recycling bin. Alternatively you can place smaller pieces into an aluminium drink can to contain them before placing it in the recycle bin. Please don’t place flat sheets or small pieces of aluminium loose in the recycling bin as they will get caught up in the paper and cause contamination issues.
