Half of plastic supermarket packaging cannot be recycled, a study by Which? has found.

Researchers analysed the packaging of 46 of the most popular own-brand items from leading supermarkets including Asda, M&S, Morrisons, and Waitrose.

They found that only 52 per cent of the packaging – including cardboard, glass and plastics – could be easily put in household recycling bins.

Morrisons was the worst offender, as 61 per cent of its packaging that Which? examined was not easily recyclable.
