WRAP’s National Recycling Guidelines

12th October 2016

Following extensive consultation with the recycling industry, WRAP has developed a list of items that can and cannot be recycled, along with how they should be presented by householders. This document outlines how and why the recycling guidelines have been developed, including a summary of results from consumer testing. 

The recycling guidelines are a list of YES and NO items that can or cannot be recycled, along with how to present items for recycling e.g. tops on or off. For the first time, agreement between reprocessors, local authorities, and waste management companies has been reached at a national level on what can and cannot be accepted for recycling.
