Mailing Satchel Collection Closes

The Waste Action Group is sorry to see another free collection service from Terracycle close. The Mailing Satchel program has been very successful, you can read more about it below.

Please note, there will be no further collection of mailing satchels at the Farmers’ Markets. However, you can return your satchels to the RedCycle bins at Coles and Woolworths

Remember: shop locally if you can and avoid using plastic mailing satchels where possible.

From Terracycle:

We're writing to inform you that as of today, the Australia Post Mailing Satchels Recycling Program will no longer be available through TerraCycle. Please read the following information carefully:

Moving forward, you will be able to recycle your mailing satchels through the soft plastics recycling program available at major supermarkets.

The Australia Post Mailing Satchel recycling program has experienced unprecedented growth since it kicked off four years ago. In partnership with Australia Post, TerraCycle has facilitated the diversion of over 10 tonnes of mailing satchels from landfill and contributed over $6,500 to the community.We'd like to extend a massive thank you to all of our collectors for participating and encourage you to continue recycling through the new take back scheme!

As of today, you will no longer be able to download shipping labels through the Australia Post Mailing Satchel Recycling Program. Instead, you will need to drop off your used mailing satchels at a participating supermarket.
