It is said that supermarkets don't do enough to recycle plastic. It will be useful to know what plastics can be recycled at supermarkets.

Most larger supermarkets accept carrier bags as well as other plastic films. As a general rule, if you can stretch the film then it can be recycled at supermarkets (even if it is not supermarket product packaging or is labelled as non-recyclable plastic - bubble wrap as an example), except for compostable and biodegradable bags. More info and the list of plastics recyclable at supermarkets here:



Besides stretchy plastics, some M&S stores have started accepting even more types of plastics for recycling, like black ready meal trays, crisp packets, sauce sachets and certain cosmetics containers, not restricted to M&S products but from any retailers. This scheme is expected to be rolled out to all M&S stores by the end of 2019. For more info, see this and this.
