Can you recycle it?…….. Transition Streets 3.8
There is no reason (apart from economic) why food packaging is not fully recycled or reused.
There are government standards that label recyclable plastic, and programs like REDcycle that manage soft plastics that otherwise are rejected at transfer stations and then become land-fill waste.
Sustainability Victoria has a guide to the types of plastics.
And, Recycling Victoria has the “what is it, and can I recycle it” interactive webpage.
