Default Tesco to start recycling bread bags and crisp packets

Spoiler:



Only Larger Tesco's, Not Scotland


[Tesco is rolling out collection points for
soft plastic packaging like crisp packets,
pet food pouches and bread bags at
stores in England and Wales.

The supermarket chain is aiming to establish
a nationwide recycling network for
these harder to process plastics.
Currently most soft plastic ends up in landfill.
The recycled material will be used to package food,
household and beauty products, Tesco said.
The supermarket said it prioritised reducing the
plastic packaging it used, but that the
new service would also have "a real impact".
"Where plastic serves an important purpose
such as reducing food waste, these
new recycling points make sure that
every piece can be easily recycled,"
said Sarah Bradbury, Tesco's director of quality.]
