hi, when you say posted next to magazine wrappers, where are you posting them to?

Maisie said...

It is a firm that will take any type 2 & 4 plastic including the ringos from beer 4pks.

Polyprint Mailing Films Ltd
Mackintosh Road
Rackheath Ind Est
NR13 6LJ

When you package it up label it as recycling and put in a note with your name and address and they will send anything back that they couldn't recycle so you know for the future.

If you keep the package under 250g and smaller than the large letter hole at the post office it costs 40p to post it.

thanks maisie, how do you work out which things are type 2 and 4 if it doesn't say on it?

Maisie said...

Type 2 is the one most councils recycle anyway so I don't worry about that one. Type 4 is usually magazine wrappers etc and ringos. basically if it stretches it will be type 4 if it snaps it is cellophane (eg crisp multibags.
Some milk jug lids are also type 4. They have a website it will probably be easier to look at this and click on recycling, then I won't forget anything.
