Can I recycle Saran Wrap?

Pat

Pat,

Ah, foiled again! While many forms of plastic film are recyclable, plastic wrap that you may use to protect food is most likely destined for the trash, especially when it is contaminated with food.


I recommend replacing plastic wrap with reusable containers with lids and/or covers and avoiding buying shrink wrapped foods and other products when possible.

Piece out,
Renee
