Most large supermarkets operate banks for LDPE bags, wrappers, etc. These are now often labelled as “check locally” or “not at kerbside” using the industry wide On Pack Labelling Scheme, as in the example below. We have no plans to add this material to our own recycling services at present. I hope this helps. Yours sincerely Angus
