retailers, including Marks & Spencer, Tesco, Waitrose, Co-op,
Asda and Sainsburys, have joined forces and worked with the
recycling industry to introduce the labelling system which will
mean that you can see, at a glance, which packaging you can recycle
by looking at the symbols printed on some product ranges. Many
household brands will be using the new labelling system across
their ranges as well.
The scheme makes significant strides towards providing clearer
information to the public, clarifying what can and cannot be
recycled currently. Product ranges included in the scheme will
feature one or more of three standard symbols showing whether each
component of its packaging is ‘widely recycled’, ‘not currently
recycled’ or only recycled in some areas, where the instruction is
to ‘check local recycling’.
This scheme will not cost you any more in council tax
It is being run by the British Retail Consortium with no
additional cost for local residents.
This scheme will not affect your current collection
It has been set up to provide you with more useful information
on what you can and can’t recycle.
