Oxo-degradable?

default Oxo-degradable?

Post by MrsC on 31st December 2009, 1:12 pm

Hello

Received my latest gardener's world mag in the post this morning and as usual separated out the leaflets included to go into the recycling bin and was about to put the plastic wrapping in the landfill bin when I noticed that printed on it was "this polythene is oxo-degradable 09/2009".

Can anyone please enlighten me as to what this means and how I can recycle it as I'm guessing that means it doesn't have to go into landfill? Or if it does that it doesn't matter as it will decompose?

I feel I should know the answer to this, but as I don't (and possibly others don't either!) I thought I'd ask as I'm sure someone on here will know!

Many thanks.

Mrs C

If you boil up some ghastly fake beef stock, mugging to camera like Lynda Bellingham the while, you can dissolve the plastic wrap in it. And probably improve the tastes of your gravy into the bargain.

(NB this does not work with Bisto, as instant gravy is already the lowest extent of degradation known to science.)
