Is it recyclable Aluminium? The Scrunch Test

Posted on November 11, 2013 at 10:26 am

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.
