Waste Free Feb – Day 6 – Not Just Plastic Bag Recycling

Most people know that old carrier bags can be recycled at most supermarkets or handed back to your home delivery driver.

But did you know that this isn’t all that can be recycled in carrier bag recycling points?

You can also recycle:

  • Bread Bags
  • Breakfast Cereal Bags (inside cardboard outers)
  • Shrink wrapped plastic and ring joiners from bottle/can multipacks
  • Frozen food bags (i.e from chips, frozen vegetables etc)
  • Dry cleaning bags/bags covering new clothing
  • Magazine wrappers
  • Bubble Wrap!

Just simply collect these types of plastics in a carrier bag and put in the recycling container next time you visit your local supermarket.

You should be able to check if your local supermarket offers this facility on their website.
