A Bega Valley Shire Council campaign to encourage soft plastics recycling will give five winning schools a prize containing thousands of plastic bags in disguise!
Through the competition, entrants are encouraged to keep soft plastics away from landfill and organic waste by showing creative ways to recycle their plastic bags, wrappers and packets.
Plastic bags mightn’t sound like a very exciting prize, but by pairing with plastic recycling company, REPLAS, we’re turning about 80,000 plastic bags into some amazing benches for five winning local schools.
Each of the benches contain about 16,000 plastic bags that otherwise would have ended up in landfill, and they have a unique design to brighten up any school playground.
Get in it to win it! Full story and an entry form are over at: www.begavalley.nsw.gov.au/soft-plastics-comp
