Tired of sin­gle-use plas­tic bags for fruit and veg­gies at the super­mar­ket? Coun­cil is giv­ing away reusable pro­duce bags to recy­clers in cel­e­bra­tion of Nation­al Recy­cling Week!

Start­ing Mon­day 13 Novem­ber, sim­ply bring in some house­hold bat­ter­ies (A, AA, AAA, D 9V, 6V, but­ton cell) or old mobile phones and acces­sories to the Civic Cen­tre, Pub­lic Library, or Redis­cov­ery Cen­tre. Coun­cil will recy­cle your items, and you’ll walk away with a set of 4 Onya brand reusable bags! Get in quick while stocks last.

These bags are a great alter­na­tive to plas­tic, and are made from recy­cled mate­ri­als! These bags poten­tial­ly keep pro­duce fresh­er by allow pro­duce to breathe’, and each bag can car­ry up to 2 kilo­grams of produce.
