I would reach out to your supplier on this as they can give you a more definite answer. 

 

A film being recyclable is an interesting situation.  As a majority are actually recyclable, the problem is most areas do not have the proper systems in place to recycle them.  Metallized films to my knowledge are generally not very recyclable.

Highly unlikely as the method to separate layers is cost prohibitive

 

You'd have to check with the sales location to see what they can/will recycle
