Which? response to LGA anaysis that finds a third of packaging pots and trays are unrecyclable

Nikki Stopford, director of research and publishing at Which?, said:

“Most people want to be able to recycle their plastic waste and reduce the amount that ends up in landfill but are often left confused by the many different materials used in everyday packaging and the cryptic labelling on how it can be recycled.

“It’s now vital that the Government, manufacturers and supermarkets do the best they can to stamp out single-use plastics and materials that cannot easily be recycled and actively encourage the use of less harmful packaging”


Notes to editors:

Up to 29% of supermarket packaging is not recyclable
