Can McCain packaging be recycled?

At McCain, we’re committed to being responsible custodians of the environment.

For the vast majority of our products, we use low density polyethylene (LDPE) packaging, which is fully recyclable in areas of the UK where councils collect food grade polyethylene.

Each local authority has their own policy about which materials they recycle, so please check with your local council to confirm whether they recycle food grade polyethylene.

Flexible packaging can also be dropped off at supermarkets for recycling. Use the tool below to check where your nearest recycling point is.
