Recycling foil – do it right

Let’s keep this short and sweet. Most people have the best intentions when it comes to recycling but the ‘rules’ can be confusing, especially when many councils differ in their standards. Recycling rules for foil seem to be quite general across the board and I’ll give you my suggestions in this blog post, but of course, if you’re in doubt please seek further clarification.

How do you recycle foil?

1. Collect little pieces of foil (think chocolate wrappers, yoghurt seals etc.) – we have a container in our pantry for this purpose.

2. Grab a larger piece of foil, pop all the small pieces on top (keep any large pieces of foil, flat and ‘un-scrunched’, they’ll come in handy for this purpose).

3. Scrunch it up into a ball roughly the size of a tennis ball, and throw it into your recycling bin.

See quite simple!

Naturally, it would be better if you could reduce/eliminate your foil use altogether, but I am a realist and acknowledge that this isn’t on everyone’s radar. So for now, at the very least, please recycle your foil properly. Thank you!
