Crisp packet recycling

Published on: 26/02/2019

South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils are recycling crisp packets!


Did you know that crisp packets aren’t widely recycled? This is because the packets often contain metallised plastic film – this is a product which contains both plastic and metal.


So, to help reduce extra waste, council offices at 135 Eastern Avenue are now a collection point for crisp packets. Why not set up a smaller collection in your office and drop into the council reception area once a week to help do your bit for the environment?


Here’s what can be recycled:

  • Yes please - all crisp packets (empty and not folded up)
  • No thanks - popcorn bags, crisp tubes, pretzel bags, meat snack bags.

Crisp manufacturers Walkers recently set up a national recycling collection scheme, where organisations and individuals can arrange to have collection boxes for all brands of crisp packets. They are sent off in bulk to a recycling company and transformed into new plastic items, such as garden furniture.


Cllr Elaine Ware, cabinet member for housing and environment at the Vale of White Horse District Council said: “It is our aim to recycle as much material as possible and to reduce the amount of waste going into the grey bins, which is why the councils are getting involved.”

Cllr Caroline Newton, cabinet member for housing and environment at South Oxfordshire District Council added: “The councils are continually looking at ways to increase our recycling through education and promotions such as this and we hope everyone will support it as much as they can.”
