Until now it has been virtually impossible to recycle yoga mats, yoga blocks, yoga straps, foam rollers, self massage balls and self massage tools. These types of items are often made of non-recyclable materials or they are made from mixed materials rendering them impossible to recycle.
Recycling your plastic can help divert waste from landfill and limit the risk of plastic finding their way into our waters ways. Scientist estimate that around only 10 per cent of plastic is recycled in Australia each year. We cannot continue to put plastic into landfill. Our animals, landscape and oceans cannot take any more plastic.
Recycled plastic material can be turned into all types of amazing products like community benches, cheap building materials and so much more.
These items have been deemed non-recyclable mainly because they cannot be recycled in our curb side recycling program. These items need specialised people and equipment to be sorted correctly and recycled with other like materials. The good news is MOBECO has found a solution.
Consider the alternatives before recycling such as giving to charity if your items still in good nick.
