  How to dispose of cellophane


Put cellophane wrap in your black cart as garbage.

Please note: Cellophane is a clear packaging material that doesn't stretch like plastic wrap. It's often used in food packaging such as the plastic seal on a frozen food dinner or wrapping used on cookies and crackers.

Why can't cellophane be recycled or composted?

While cellophane may look like plastic it is not. The material is semi-synthetic and is not suitable for recycling or composting.
