I am aware of a few ways to "upcycle" a sealable coffee (ground or whole beans) bag (see photo), but how recyclable is it?
I am sure it depends a lot on where I live, but I was wondering if you knew of a system currently in place that allows a recycling plant to recover the materials that are part of those bags, which I often see made of plastic/aluminium or paper/plastic/aluminium. They often include an "aerating/breathing" plastic circle on one side.
I am asking because I know that it is very common to recycle complex packagings like drink cartons (i.e. Tetra Pak type).
