Is it recyclable Aluminium? The Scrunch Test
 
01:13
Aluminium foil is 100% recyclable, but how do you check if your pack is made of foil and not plastic film? It's one of the questions we get asked the most at Alupro - and our answer is simple, "Do the Scrunch test" If you scrunch it in your hand and it holds its shape, it's aluminium. If it springs back it's metallised plastic film. This film has been produced by Alupro as part of a series to explain how to prepare your aluminium packaging for recycling. Please link and share, and thank you for recycling! www.alupro.org.uk

Why rinse foil trays before recycling ?
 
01:12
What does my council mean when they ask me to rinse foil trays before recycling? This video explains why it's important to rinse out food residue to help with the recycling of aluminium foil trays. Basically it stops other recyclables getting contaminated, and cuts down on smells so it's a good habit to get into. No need to run the tap, just swill them out at the end of the washing up then recycle - easy! This film is one of a series produced by Alupro to explain how to prepare aluminium packaging for recycling. Please share and link to the video to help more aluminium packaging get back in the recycling loop. www.alupro.org.uk
