All plastic packaging waste can now be placed in Irish household recycling bins, including in ACR+ member Eastern Midlands Waste Region and Southern Waste Region, as long as it is clean, dry and loose. Making the announcement, Minister of State with special responsibility for Communications and Circular Economy, said soft plastic can be placed in the household recycling bin along with “rigid” plastic. Soft plastics have been added to the household national recycling list due to advancements in technology at Irish recycling facilities. Currently in Ireland less than a third of all plastic packaging waste is recycled. The government has commitments to increase plastic packaging recycling figure to 50% by 2025 and 55% by 2030.
