How to recycle cutlery
Cutlery in good condition can be donated to charity for reuse;
Wooden disposable cutlery can be placed in a garden waste collection to be composted;
Metal cutlery that is of no further use can be recycled with scrap metal at household waste recycling centres.
Plastic disposable cutlery
The best thing to do is avoid using plastic disposable cutlery if possible. An EU Plastics Directive means that plastic cutlery will be phased out, including in the UK in due course.
