So I just got the Imperial Strong Point last weekend and I have finished assembling. While cleaning up my workspace I realized how much plastic there is on the sprues. I'd like to recycle it, but I don't know the plastic type so I can't verify that my recycling pickup will take it.
Anyone knowledgeable on recycling know whether the GW sprues are recyclable?

I am interested about what kind of material it is though, anyone know?
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

So THAT'S what I'll do on my new valkyrie base.
Thanks for the idea zema!

I don't know if it can be recycled, I've usually just binned it. At first I used to keep a lot of sprue, thinking it might come in handy for terrain or something, but I never got around to doing anything with it, so now i just bin it.

I recently cleared out my entire surplus of sprues and boxes. Man, you amass a lot of crap over the years!
Here in Sweden we have two types of bins for plastic recycling - hard and soft plastic. I put the sprues in the hard, which seemed fine. I don't see no reason that you would not be able to recycle it with the other hard plastics, since GW's plastic still need to abide with all the rules and regulations of producing commercial plastic products within the EU.
The boxes has the "recyclable" logo on them as well, and I assume it applies to both the box and the content of it.

Model kits are actually recycling #6, the same as styrofoam take-out trays, plastic beer cups, etc. Should be recyclable anywhere.
It's made from hard polystyrene.
Recycles as plastic.
same material as one-use cutlery etc etc.
