They may look good and sound like a great way to keep track of what bin is your and what council takes care of your rubbish but the truth is that some of these stickers can cause major problems down the line.
Most councils use a company like CK Polymers Bin Distribution to recycle their wheelie bins. CK Polymers recycle Wheelie bins for over 300 Councils with their closed loop recycling programme, CK Polymers pick up, store, recycle and delivery all wheelie bins.
The problem that the stickers cause is at the recycling process, plastic and paper stickers do not break down the same as the plastic wheelie bins do. The process of recycling is rather simple, the bins are collected and they put through a grinding machine that breaks the bins in to small pieces of plastic the small pieces the go through another machine called and extruder that melts the plastic and pushed it through a screen that forms them in to small pellets, after this process the plastic is then stored in bags and it can then be reused to make new bins.
Next time you want to put a sticker on your wheelie bin take a moment to think if it can be easily removed and the material are the same as the bin.
