Is the glue on our corrugated boxes recyclable?

Is the glue on our corrugated boxes recyclable?

Small amounts of glue can be recycled, although before you recycle a box containing glue, you should always check that the quantity of glue is not excessive.

Excess amounts of glue or adhesive on packaging products can make it harder to dispose of, and some councils do not have capabilities to easily break excess glue. This goes for any form of product containing glue, not just packaging, with glues including spray adhesive, paper tape and other adhesives. You can check your recycling requirements with your local council here: https://www.gov.uk/recycling-collections 

Glue and adhesives are among the most popular and preferred sealing method, as glue is usually made using cyanoacrylate, an acrylic resin which is very strong, making it the preferred method compared to other sealing methods such as stapling and stitching.

Paper tape is fast growing in popularity as it is a great way of securing your packaging sustainably, with an overprinting option that will contribute to enhancing your branding and the unboxing experience.
