You can recycle most envelopes at home. They can also be taken to your local recycling centre (RC).
Put in your recycling bin
- Paper envelopes
Put in your general waste bin
- Padded envelopes, such as Jiffy bags, cannot be recycled due to the plastic lining inside.
Which RC container
- For recyclable envelopes, use the mixed recycling container.
- For non-recyclable items, use the general waste container.
Which RC accept this waste
All our recycling centres accept envelopes.
Don't worry about removing the plastic windows on envelopes. These are removed in the recycling process.
