Aluminium foil

Recycle clean aluminium foil and foil trays in your mixed recycling bin at home.

Recycling Tip

To check whether something is made of foil or not, do the scrunch test.

Scrunch the item in your hand:

  • if it stays scrunched – its foil!  Recycle it in your mixed recycling bin
  • If it springs back – its plastic ! Put it in your general waste bin
