Here is a quick guide on what you should and shouldn’t put in your recycle bin

You can dispose of all plastic packaging, including soft plastic, in your household recycling container once it’s ‘clean, dried, and loose’

This is a major change from the past, when rigid plastic was allowed in your green bin.

It is a result of technological upgrades at Ireland’s recycling centers.

These centres will separate any plastics that are not recyclable and use them to make Solid Recovered Fuel, which can be used to replace fossil fuels in cement kilns.

Here is a quick guide on what you should and shouldn’t put in your recycle bin.

You can put what you want in your household recycle bin

  • Soft plastics – All plastic packaging, including bread wrappers and bubble wrappers, breakfast cereal bags as well as frozen food bags, 6-pack rings, carrier bags and freezer bags.
