Central Coast Council has launched a household soft plastics recycling program. The program, which is run by our partners iQRenew and CurbCycle, aims to provide a simple, fun and rewarding way for you to recycle soft plastics from the comfort and safety of your home using your Council yellow lid recycling bin. All residents who live in the Central Coast local government area (LGA) who have access to a smart phone can opt-in to participate in this free program. Here’s how to get involved:

  1. Simply download the Curby App and register to participate
  2. You’ll be sent CurbyPacks for the collection of household soft plastics
  3. Once you’ve received your packs, you’ll be able to put soft plastics into your yellow lid recycling bin using the provided CurbyBags and CurbyTags

Participants will be provided with Curby bags and tags to collect their soft plastics. The tagged bags will be placed in their yellow bin, the soft plastics will be separated and diverted from landfill and used to create other products.

Please remember, you must use the special yellow bags and tags for the recycling sorting facility to recognise your soft plastics, otherwise the soft plastics may end up contaminating some of our other recycling.

You can also continue to recycle your soft plastics through the REDcycle bins at Coles and Woolworths.
