How To Recycle Egg-cellently This Easter
With more and more of us getting the hang of our recycling, we wanted to share with you some top tips to ensure this Easter is as eco-friendly as possible.
There’s lots of work being done to reduce the amount of packaging and make it more recyclable - but we can all play our part at home too.
The delightful treats that come with Easter, also bring with it numerous boxes, foil wrapping and the plastic! We want to make sure you have all the infomration you need to ensure you can recycle effectively this Easter.
Check out our top tips for a more recycling friendly Easter:
- This one is easy – your cardboard boxes can be flattened and recycled.
- Most packaging will have all the recycling information on, it will help you pick out which parts can and cannot be recycled. Our Packaging Symbols Explained page can help.
- Your local supermarket has some great recycling facilities, and some will take the recycling your local authority may not, so check out your local supermarket for instore recycling.
- It’s not just chocolate egg packaging, if you get an abundance of Easter cards these can be recycled in with your card and paper – just rip off any glittery bits!
- Did you know that the foil wrapping on your Easter eggs can be recycled? Including the infamous Cadbury Crème Egg!! Just scrunch together with any other foil and pop in the recycling.
- Try the scrunch test with foil – if it scrunches and doesn’t spring, it’s safe to be recycled. If it scrunches but spring back they have a plastic lining and can’t be recycled, so it’s best to pop this in the general rubbish bin.
