Food and drink pouches

Pouches such as those used for drinks, coffee, pet food and baby food can’t be recycled in your bins at home. These are difficult to recycle as they are made of both metal and plastic.

Some food brands have partnered with Terracycle to recycle food pouches. Check for a recycling drop off point near you.

If there isn’t a recycling point near you, put these should in your general waste bin.
