What to do with my soft plastics

Why are soft plastics now allowed to be placed in my recycling bin? There are two reasons: Improvements to facilities along with Emergence of new markets. In Ireland we collect all recyclables in the same bin and the sorting of all these materials take place at a recycling facility.

Most plastics collected in Ireland are exported for recycling.
