Specialist Recycling: Bread Tags

Have you been collecting your BREAD TAGS for recycling?

Too small to be recycled via curbside collection, these can be brought into your local WP store to be sent to Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs. The tags are recycled locally, raising funds to buy wheelchairs for disadvantaged people, mainly in South Africa.

Bread tags are recycled in Robe, South Australia, by Transmutation, run by Brad and Narelle Scott. Transmutation runs a craft plastic recycling operation and retail shop, selling their own products, as well as other products supplied by Australian artisans that share their vision to recycle, reuse and reduce landfill. Transmutation takes monthly shipments of bread tags from us, recycling the tags to make bowls, boards, and pens. These products can be purchased online, from their shop in Robe. Whiteboards and bowls are available from Country Road.

Note: This is just for plastic tags. Cardboard tags can be composted at home or via the green bin, or placed in the yellow bin inside a used envelope to stop them from falling through the rollers. Or make good use of them to mulch a plant!
