Hi Chris

Thank you for your recycling question. There are so many different types of takeaway packaging, they can be a real source of recycling confusion!

Plastic takeaway tubs used for sauces and condiments can not be disposed of in your kerbside recycling bin in your local area. This item is too small to be processed through the kerbside system and will slip through gaps in sorting equipment.

Consider washing the tub and re-using containers like these for small items like hair pins, collector coins or other small household items.

Unfortunately, we are not aware of any other recycling opportunities for plastic takeaway sauce tubs like these in your local area so you’ll need to dispose of it in your general waste bin at home.

Thank you for reaching out to Recycle Mate. Every question like yours helps us build a stronger platform for providing better recycling solutions.
