Bag Trade-in Offer
Plastic bags cause serious damage to the environment and to marine animals. The use of calico bags for shopping, as an alternative to plastic bags, is giving the environment a helping hand in a practical manner.
Bring 10 clean supermarket plastic bags into Council and we will give you a FREE calico shopping bag in return (one per customer). The plastic will be used in construction industry products. Ask at customer service for your FREE calico bag.
Consider donating these to a community bike workshop such as Cycle ReCycle, where they will be fixed up or broken down for spare parts for use by disadvantaged members of the community.
