Lucozade Could Replace Its Unrecyclable Drinks Packaging

November 2, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
British beverage company Lucozade Ribena Suntory says it is assessing what it can do about its purportedly unrecyclable drinks packaging. The U.K. Recycling Association recently singled out the company’s Lucozade Sport bottle as one of the worst offenders in the food and beverage packaging industry because it is “so confusing to computer scanners” and “often just gets chucked away.” In addition, the polymer sleeve the brand uses can be recycled, but only at one center in the U.K. After a dressing down by a government environmental committee, the company said it was meeting with recycling experts to find a solution to the problem.
