Hi Gail

Thank you for your recycling question.

Chocolate tins like the one in your photo can be recycled in your household kerbside recycling bin if larger than a credit card and free of any other materials. Smaller items slip through the gaps in collection and sorting equipment. Please ensure the tin is empty of all food.

If your chocolate tin is in good condition that’s suitable for resale use Recycle Mate to find a charity shop or other location nearby accepting donations.

Thank you for your recycling enquiry. Please contact us at Recycle Mate with your recycling enquiries again any time.
