Dear Panda Customer,
To support Ireland in reaching its plastic recycling targets which are set to rise over the coming years, our New Year’s resolution is to recycle as much plastic as possible and we are asking for your help to support this.
We are working with Repak and the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment to play our part to help Ireland reach these plastic recycling targets.
Overall, Ireland has a great track record for recycling, but we still have a lot of work to do if we want to meet the new targets. A recent review shows us that, on average, 4% of the content of our customer’s black bins is perfectly recyclable plastic packaging (bottles, pots, tubs and trays).
All of the below items are recyclable and should be placed clean, empty, dry and loose into your recycling bin.
If every one of our 250,000 household customers put all of their clean bottles, pots, tubs and trays in the recycling bin we would recycle more than 6,000 extra tonnes of plastic each year! 6,000 tonnes of plastic is the equivalent of 120 million two-litre drinks bottles.
We want to encourage all our customers to talk about recycling in the home, be diligent about putting plastic bottles, clean paper, card, rigid plastics, aluminium and steel in the recycling bin. You are helping the environment and saving precious natural resources. The cumulative impact of small changes to your habits at home can make a big difference. Make a New Year’s resolution that sticks!
Don’t forget - all recyclables should be clean, empty, dry and loose!
