“Play TAG -with The Roadies”  

  • Don’t throw away your old bread bag tags!
    Give them to The Roadies and we will recycle them and help others in need!
  • Bring your bread tags along to The Roadies each Monday or drop them off to a collection point and we will recycle them. Thanks to a generous recycler in Robe- Transmutation– our bread tags are now recycled into products such as floor tiles, bowls and door knobs.
  • We receive cash for our bread tags and the proceeds are sent to Bread tags for Wheelchairs in South Africa.  A group who help disabled adults and children obtain much needed wheelchairs. 
  • We are also partnering with Aussie Breadtags for Wheelchairs! Together our aim is to create more collection points all over Australia!  To host or find out about other collection points contact Find them on facebook!
    We are so thrilled to announce that SA are the first state in Australia where we are able to recycle our bread tags!
