Plastic film

Find out how to reduce and recycle plastic film.


Try and avoid using single-use plastic film - there are reusable wrapping alternatives available (such as beeswax wraps). Consider using aluminium foil which can be placed in your recycling bin (if clean).


Some supermarkets have collection bins for soft plastics such as plastic bags, food bags and plastic film but you will need to check with the store in advance.
