Did you know?

Many items can now be recycled at points outside supermarkets. Please check packaging for labels such as “Don’t recycle at kerbside”, ‘Don’t recycle at home”, “Recycle with bags at larger stores” or “Recycle at store”.  Sainsbury’s and Morrisons have such collection bins outside of their main entrances, and many products now contain such labels. For example:

  • Bread bags and bread products
  • Certain brands of plastic wrap holding multipack cans/tins together, eg Coca Cola, Heinz baked beans
  • Aldi 100% biodegradable plastic free baby wipes with 100% recyclable packaging
  • Fruit/veg bags from various stores
  • Various brand toilet/kitchen roll packets
  • Various brands of frozen fish packaging

There are probably others, so it’s always worth checking.  If you do your food shopping online and would like someone to periodically collect your packaging to take to the supermarket, please use the form below:
