Are Oomph recycled plastic cards recyclable?
Yes, although only by specialist recycling companies! PVC is classified as No.3 on plastic recycling code which means our recycled plastic cards cannot be thrown into normal kerbside waste.
For us, we reduce our use of virgin plastic through the reuse of our PVC offcuts and by promoting mindful recycling. We also work with TerraCycle to recycle our plastic cards using zero-waste boxes which you can buy here
Don't be fooled by claims made by other plastic card printing companies. Recycled plastic, biodegradable plastic and compostable plastic cards have to be recycled by specialist recycling companies. They will not breakdown in a landfill or your compost heap. Only PETG plastic cards without a magnetic stripe or RFID chip are 100% recyclable through all UK kerbside waste programmes.
