Crisp packets are made of 'metallised plastic film'. We do not have the technology to recycle them in your household recycling collection.

TerraCycle (opens in a new window) runs a crisp packet recycling scheme where crisp packets can be recycled at a number of drop-off points. However, from 23 April 2022, this scheme comes to an end. 

Alternatively, please put crisp packets in your general waste.
