Slim Your Bin!

Saw this fabulous post on Facebook and just had to share

Did you know that you can put all your stretchy plastic bags  into the supermarket plastic carrier bag recycling bin?

Take a look above at what you may have at home.

As long as the plastic bag is stretchy it can be recycled at most major supermarkets including Tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, The Co-op and Waitrose. That means sandwich bags, toilet paper wrap, bake beans wrap, frozen veg bags, most bread bags and the wrap you get on cucumbers can all be recycled.

Unfortunately you cannot recycle the non-stretchy crinkly wrapping like you find with chocolate bars, crisps, salad and some breads.

But by taking stretchy plastic from your waste stream you should be able to slim your bin even further! It’s easy to store too – just pop it all in a carrier bag then put it all in the recycling bin next time you visit the store.
