Can you recycle cellophane wrap? While plastic bags are recyclable in most communities, cellophane wrap seems to be another story altogether. In most communities, if the plastic makes a crinkly noise when crunched up, it can NOT be recycled and must be thrown in the trash instead.

A:All plastic is recyclable. However plastic that is used to wrap food is often contaminated, adding to the cost of recovery. There may be no-one in your area who is prepared to recycle plastic wrap.

To answer the first question, cellophane is not currently recycled. Cellophane is not in the plastic family. Cellophane is bio-degradable usually within 90 days after it is buried.

Even if you put plastic in your recycling bin, you should know that only 9% of plastic ends up recycled since its so costly and loses its quality, 80% of plastic ends up in landfill/oceans and 11% is incinerated. It's not good...
