Packaging

I am concerned about your packaging.
It is not clear if it is possible how to recycle the package.
Please explain?

  • Hi Claudia,

    Thanks for getting in touch!

    It's great that you want to recycle the packaging correctly. Our packages are fully recyclable, however, what makes a material recyclable is whether the infrastructure (sorting and collection) is in place and the material can be recycled using existing technologies. This may therefore differ depending on the area in which you live. 

    We have chosen Tetra Pak packaging for our products and over 90% of UK local authorities have recylcing spots for Tetra Pak. Hopefully that will reach 100% soon! You can look up on the Tetra Pak website where your closest recycling point is here .

    All the best

  • How exactly do you do this? The spout as you know is plastic. The rest is mixed. How do YOU do this? Practically.  It is mixed plastic and all sorts .Your reply not helpful.
    Thanks

  • Hi Claudia,

    I'm sorry for not answering your question clearly. When recycling a Tetra Pak carton you do not need to separate out the materials. It only needs to be rinsed clean. The plastic cap and ring pull can be added to your regular plastic recycling. The Tetra Pak recycling process seperates out the materials as shown here and explained in more detail here.

    The link in my previous message will show you how to sort the carton according to your local authority (which colour bin to put it in if home collection is taking place or, if not, where to take it to).

    I hope this answers your question. If not or if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get back in touch!

    All the best

  • so do you really expect everyone who buys oatly to get a pair of scissors and cut out the plastic - no other way of easily getting it out- to do this? Is there
    who is in charge of this at Oatly? thanks

  • Hi Claudia,

    The Tetra Pak recycling system separates out the materials that are in the cartons. This means that you do not need to separate out the plastic yourself. The Tetra Pak system is designed to ensure the materials in the cartons can be separated by them and recycled.

    All the best
