According to the British Recycling Association the infra red sensors at many re-cycling plants cannot detect black plastic food trays and so they are sent to landfill or incinerators. Although they are labelled as being recyclable, few actually achieve it. So before you wash up your black plastic trays send an email to your local council and your supermarket to ask them what they are doing about it.

Do trays need to be black ? Could better sensors be developed ? Are there other things to do with the trays which make good drawer organisers ?

To date global data shows that a mere 14% of plastic packaging is collected for recycling but unfortunately only 2% gets made into something that can be used a second time.
