In the UK, It is best to check with your local authority if and what type of envelopes they can recycle and whether they will collect the envelopes with kerbside recycling or in a recycling bank. Some local authorities cannot process the glues which are present in envelopes, some cannot process plastic windows and most cannot process padded envelopes which are made of multiple materials.
