Magazine wrapping

Guidance

This can be recycled. The specification for the Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs), which sort north Londoners’ recycling into the different individual materials includes magazine wrapping. Our current recycling guidance document lists all plastic wrapping in the ‘no’ section because fruit wrappings and bread bags are not accepted (because they are made of a different type of plastic to magazine wrapping). However, when the guidance is next reviewed we will consider specifically listing and including magazine wrapping as an acceptable item and advise that fruit wrappings and bread wrapping are not acceptable.
