Walkers has posted the first update on its nationwide crisp packet recycling scheme, revealing that more than 500,000 packets have been collected since its launch in December 2018.

Under the scheme, PepsiCo subsidiary Walkers and recycling firm TerraCycle worked collaboratively to develop a recycling solution for crisp packets. The method involves cleaning and shredding the crisp packets, allowing them to be melted into small plastic pellets that can then be used to make new rigid plastic items such as garden furniture.
