How to recycle corks

  • Corks can be put in your home compost bin, if you have one, or used as a mulch on plants when chopped into small pieces;

  • They can also be sent to cork recycling schemes such as Recorked UK who resell them and donate a percentage of profits to nominated charities;

  • Otherwise they need to be placed in your bag or bin for non-recyclable waste.
