Crisp packets

Crisp packets


Crisp packets are made of a number of different materials and are currently not suitable for recycling.


Crisp packets should be placed in the general waste bin.

General Comment / Tip

Although the inside of the packet is shiny and looks like foil, it is in fact a metallised plastic film. This type of material is not currently recycled and should not be put in your recycling bin.

TerraCycle® and Walkers® have partnered to create a free recycling scheme for all crisp packets. The scheme also offers participants the opportunity to fundraise for their favourite school or charity. Check HERE
