Keep them loose. It helps the sorting machines do their job. [A sorting machine is shown separating a variety of plastics]
Number 2 - nappies. These should always go in the rubbish bin. [An image of baby having nappy changed is shown]
Number 3 - items that still have stuff in them. They need to be clean and empty to reduce contamination. [Image of pizza slice in a cardboard box is shown.]
Number 4 - plastic lids. These are too small for the sorting machines. They need to go in your rubbish bin. [A collection of colourful plastic lids from milk and soft drink bottles is shown.]
Number 5 - soft plastics. Put them in the ‘Redcycle’ bin at your local supermarket instead. [A woman wrapping food in plastic cling wrap is shown.]
