Packaging

How to reduce the amount or recycle packaging.


Reduce

Avoid excess packaging where possible by not buying it in the first place. Buy loose fruit and vegetables rather than pre-packed.

Recycle

  • You can compost packaging such as cardboard and paper. Find out about composting by visiting our composting web pages.
    To purchase a compost bin visit www.derbyshire.getcomposting.com (opens in a new window) or call 0844 571 4444.
  • Unfortunately there are no plastic packaging recycling facilities as there are no reprocessing plants in the UK who can take this material at present.
