How to reduce the amount or recycle packaging.


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


  • 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 (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.
