You can further reduce the need for purchasing plastic toys by visiting your local toy library.   Look up Toy Hire and Libraries in your yellow pages for the nearest toy library.

Here are a few suggestions on what else you can do with your unwanted plastic toys:

  • Donate to Toy library, Waiting Room, Library or Kindergarten/Playcentre
  • Give to family or friends
  • On sell

Plastic toys can be made up of a number of different plastic, and therefore cannot be recycled.  If you cannot reuse your plastic toy the next best practical option is disposal to the regional landfill through your local refuse collection service.
