Knox Soft Plastic Recycling
#8I have to throw so much clean soft plastic out through my business, and it is not good for my business or the planet. We can do better!
Flynn Dovey (Fyshwick, 2022-04-01)
#13I’m signing because soft plastics make up such a significant portion of our rubbish. No matter how we buy food, it is so hard to avoid them. Either a dedicated solution should be made for the soft plastic waste or alternatively companies should accept them back and make use of them, or find another way to package their items. More expensive yes, but so so worthwhile.

#15We need this in Canberra
Amanda Klingberg (Canberra, 2022-04-01)
#16This say it all ? There is currently no commercial solution in the ACT for recycling soft plastics, we want to change that. In a small trial The Knox collected roughly 1,200L of soft plastics per week which would otherwise be going to landfill.
please your in apposition of power to care and make a change .
Tracy Rose (ACT, 2022-04-01)
#18I am acutely aware of my impact on the environment. I make an effort to reduce and reuse as much as possible, but sometimes recycling is the only option. After composting food waste and recycling other materials, soft plastics make up the bulk of my household waste - and I can only imagine what this looks like for business. We need a solution that works for recycling domestic and commercial soft plastic waste in Canberra.

#22I accumulate a lot of soft plastic and there is no easy option to recycle it, as I rarely go to a supermarket, especially in a pandemic. We need a better option in Canberra. Ideally I'd like a household bin but any option other than a supermarket would be a good start
Jennifer Cox (Evatt, 2022-04-01)
#28More needs to be done about soft plastics!
Melinda Hall-Villiers (Canberra, 2022-04-01)
#39It seems absolute ridiculous that we collect so much plastic but can’t do anything with it
Luke. Oxley (Dickson, 2022-04-01)
#44Everyone should be either banning soft plastics or doing something about it
Riccardo Riegler (Pagewood, 2022-04-01)
#45We are generally pretty good at recycling in the ACT but a soft plastic option is really needed. Thanks to Knox for taking up the challenge.
Michael White (Watson, 2022-04-01)
#48Soft plastics cause a great deal of harm to our wildlife.
Heidi Livermore (Canberra, 2022-04-01)
#57There needs to be better and more readily available solutions to soft plastics.
Sarah Bell (Watson, Canberra, 2022-04-01)
#59We need more ways to recycle wherever we can!
Elise Wright (Kaleen, 2022-04-01)
#64I care about the planet
Belinda Barnard (Canberra, 2022-04-01)
#65It's so important to recycle single use plastics and have convenient local drop off places like the Knox Made in Watson.
David Turbayne (Canberra, 2022-04-01)
#80I'd like to have my soft plastics recycled not dumped in landfill
Annette Corben (Evatt, 2022-04-01)
#92It’s really important to have options for recycling soft plastics.
Anne Haggar (Canberra, 2022-04-02)
#93I’m signing because I wanto help make a change for a sustainable future
Lewis shepherd (Latham, 2022-04-02)
#95Hoping enough signatures can prompt some innovation!
Fiona Hedgecoe (Downer, 2022-04-02)
#96I care about the environment!
Kathryn Allan (watson, 2022-04-02)
#102We have an obligation to our future to ensure recycling is promoted and actioned.
Deborah Henry (Stirling , 2022-04-02)
#105I’m signing because this is such a ‘simple fix’ on the road to looking after our planet. If individuals are encouraged to recycle, it should be even more important to give companies the avenues to do so.
Karen Spedding (Canberra , 2022-04-02)
#132It’s not good enough! We need more recycling options!
Ellie Misios (O’Connor, 2022-04-03)
#138My wife gave an unconvincing defence of recycling but she still thinks it is on balance a good thing and I trust her judgement.
James Willoughby (Watson, 2022-04-04)
#139Soft plastics are often forgotten but we need sustainable long term solutions for this issue.
Katrina Shaw (Downer, 2022-04-04)
#140i want to reduce soft plastic in landfill
beck collis (canberra, 2022-04-04)
#141As I care about what goes to landfill.
Lindy Fritsche (Watson, 2022-04-04)
Jasper Kilby (Canberra, 2022-04-04)
#147There should be greater support, incentives and mechanisms to stop soft plastics going to landfill. There is no Planet B.
Amanda Robinson (Canberra, 2022-04-04)
#161It's not enough for the government to hope that businesses will do the right thing. They need the options to be available. We need commercial soft plastic recycling in Canberra (I am a business owner who generates soft plastic waste and I want to see it recycled appropriately.
Julie Bray (Gungahlin, 2022-04-07)
#165I am signing because there are solutions for soft plastic recycling now and we should adopt them, the government should support this.
Jody Bruce (Canberra , 2022-04-10)
#166We've used the trial and it's shocked us how much soft plastics is on everything and how small our red bin rubbish is now. It confuses me why we dont have a bin for soft plastics already
Michael Howe (Watson, 2022-04-10)
#168I want to be able to recycle more and reduce landfill.
Andrea Wang (Bruce, 2022-04-10)
#176Signing because sustainability is essential for a positive future for our kids and I struggle to find sufficient places to take my soft plastics recycling. I would also be happy to support purchasing products made from these materials but it’s not clear that we are closing this loop
Veronica Doerr (Canberra, 2022-04-10)
#181It's the right thing to do!
Geoff Hudson (Ainslie, 2022-04-11)
#194We need to recycle soft plastics until we have more completely bio degradable alternatives
Robyn Sirr (Downer, 2022-04-12)
#197We already collect all our plastic, there needs to be less plastic and more recycling for what we use. There is no future on a dead planet.
