Find out the definitive rules on what can and can’t be recycled at home

clip_image002A new set of guidelines published by WRAP is aiming to clear up confusion over the do’s and don’ts of household recycling in England.

The new guidelines published on 12th October have been put together in consultation with a range of sources from local authorities to waste management companies and recyclers in an effort to provide a consistent message for the general public.

This follows on from WRAP’s survey earlier this year that found that two thirds of UK households admitted they were confused by recycling rules.

The new guidelines cover paper, card, mixed paper and card, metal packaging, glass packaging, plastic bottles, mixed plastics, food and drink cartons, food waste and other items in between.

It also includes extensive guidance on how to prepare items for recycling, such as rinsing out certain materials, removing lids or peeling away parts of materials which cannot be recycled.

WRAP now aims to encourage local authorities to share the new guidelines with the public so that a consistent message can be sent out to the public over recycling best practices.

The guidelines can be viewed here in their entirety: http://www.wrap.org.uk/sites/files/wrap/Recycling%20Guidelines.pdf.
