The system enables customers to recycle all flexible plastic packaging, which 83% of UK local authorities currently do not accept for recycling, including crisp packets, food pouches, salad bags, and biscuit and cake wrappers.
The supermarket giant has introduced front-of-store recycling points that make it easy for customers to make more sustainable choices.Claire Hughes, director of product and innovation at Sainsbury’s, said: “We’re really excited to announce the mass rollout of the Flexible Plastics Recycling scheme in over 520 of our stores, helping our customers to recycle more of their plastic packaging, instead of it ending up as waste.
“Making recycling easier for our customers is a key part of our strategy to minimise the impact of single-use plastics on the environment, alongside our own ambitious target of reducing the use of plastics in our own operations by 50% by 2025.”
