Soyfish containers are not part of the 2022 single-use-plastic ban in NSW 2022. What can we do?
1. Don't buy them.
2. These pesky fish-shaped soy sauce containers have a habit of hanging around. Can they be recycled? Yes, but this comes with a caveat. Even if properly disposed of, small items like sushi fish can be lost at the recycling plant.
This is because the machinery used to sort recyclables has size limits. Only items as large as a business card will go through. Anything smaller ends up in the landfill pile.
Put them inside a bigger plastic container, like a bottle or tub. Keep them contained within something else of the same material. This goes for other small things, such as metal lids. Put them in an old tin can and squeeze the can shut so the lids don’t fall out. Remember: like goes with like when it comes to combining materials.
