Self adhesive materials are not currently designed to be fully recycled, as the adhesives cannot be separated from the paper during the recycling process.
However, and of a far more significant relevance, a single self adhesive label affixed to a cardboard box or envelope can be processed for recycling without any issues.
The backing to the labels is also not widely recycled due to the silicone coating on the backing sheet, which is designed to stop the label sticking to the backing sheet.
All waste from self adhesive labels can, however, be used for Energy Recovery with the Calorific Value of the waste being in the range of 18-22MJ/Kg.
