Published 15 April 2019

The aluminium foil wrapping from Easter eggs is recyclable, but you’ll have to eat more than one to make this work!  

Simply collect your clean foil wrappings, scrunch them together into a ball about the size of a tennis ball and place in your yellow-lidded recycling bin.

Foil wrappers are too small and light to recycle individually.

Recycled aluminium foil could end up being manufactured into new aluminium items, such as soft drink cans, ladders, saucepans and bikes.
