Here is some information that relates to the materials
used in the Labels Products supplied to our Customers
Self adhesive materials are not designed for
recycling, as the adhesives cannot be separated from
the paper during the recycling process.
However, and of a more significant relevance,
a single self adhesive label affixed to a cardboard box or
envelope can be processed for recycling without issues.
The backing to the labels is also not widely recycled due to the
silicone coating on the backing sheet which is designed to stop
the label sticking to the backing sheet. There are a few
specialist recycling plants in Europe that handle self adhesive
backing sheets, such as RafCycle in Germany
and Lenzing Papier in Austria.
All waste from self adhesive labels can, however, be used for
Energy Recovery with the Calorific Value of the waste
being in the range of 18-22MJ/Kg.
