Appeal to recycle Easter eggs packaging



First published in

Recycling officers from Cherwell District Council have urged residents to recycle packaging from their Easter eggs.

Oxfam reported that on average a 200g Easter egg will come with 54 grams of cardboard and two grams of tin foil.

Recycling officer Andrew Jenkins said: “We are encouraging people to think green this Easter and remember that once they have filled their tummies with chocolate, they should then fill their blue recycling bins with the packaging.”
