I’ve got 5 council bins for waste
- Plastics, metals and glass
- Compostable garden waste
- Food waste
Screwcaps go in No. 2 Plastics, metals and glass
Plastic ‘corks’ go in 2 Plastics, metals and glass*
But real corks?
Not garden waste, they’re tree bark but tree branches with a diameter bigger than a man’s finger are not accepted, and a cork is much wide than that
So I put them in bin 5 Landfill .
Yet I recall the cork industry makinga lot of noise about how corks are recyclable, Where?
*The Society’s Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is closed with plastic Nomacorc ‘corks’ which are stamped “100% Recyclable”
