Having difficulty telling whether a bread tag is plastic or cardboard? The easiest way to check is to bend it in half – if it breaks, it’s plastic, but if it bends, it’s cardboard. Cardboard tags are coming in lots of colours now (including white), but they have no recycling value to us, so no need to send them – they can be recycled inside e.g. a used envelope in the yellow bin or composted loose in the green bin or home compost.
PS broken plastic tags are fine – they are melted down anyway.
