Mackie's of Scotland

Recycling for the environment

Our ice cream may taste like a luxury indulgence, but it doesn’t have to cost the earth.


As part of our commitment to the environment, Mackie’s recycle cardboard, plastic and wood, batteries and metal. The cardboard and plastic is baled and collected by our recycling partner. And because we know that small things count too, our office recycles paper, cans, toner cartridges, batteries, mobile phones and plastic.


Our ice cream tubs are recyclable, however, we realise that kerbside collection for recycling of plastic is still limited in the UK, so it’s a pleasure to hear about how you re-use our tubs. They can be washed in the dish washer and are good for food storage but have been adapted for lots of other uses like plant pots, tidy pencil store or bird feeders.
