Can be broken down and used as an ingredient of a new material
Recyclable materials, when disposed of correctly, can be broken down into a rawer form and turned into new material. Recyclable products may be mixed with other recycled materials or virgin material to be turned into a new product. All municipalities in the EU  are required by law to offer recycling bins to residents and recycle the materials accordingly.
Why you should use recyclable materials
Recyclable materials lower the demand for virgin materials and the energy needed to produce them. Recyclable materials may be important to a brand in order to lower their own carbon emissions or because they value using and being a part of a circular economy.
If end users don’t have access to municipal recycling facilities, recyclable cardboard can be used in a home compost  heap.
Why you shouldn’t use recyclable materials
A brand may decide to not use recyclable materials if the packaging comes into contact with food. The rules for recycling pizza boxes  vary from area to area, as grease and oil mix with the cardboard, rendering it unrecyclable.
