Top Tips:

  • Flatten your cardboard boxes, tins, cans or plastics and fold any paper – it will take up less space in your bin.
  • Think outside the kitchen – shampoo bottles, bubble bath, lotions and potions all come in containers that can be recycled. Pop a small bin in your bathroom to remind you to collect all of them.
  • It really helps if you thoroughly rinse all items before placing them in your bin, as dirty or unsuitable items could contaminate the entire contents.

What Can’t Go in Your Recycling Bin:

  • All Plastic bags – black bags, bin liners, shopping bags, bread wrappers, crisp bags
  • Coal bags, compost and fertiliser bags, pet-food bags or pouches
  • Plastic film – cling film, wrappers, packaging, bubble wrap
  • Hard plastics – toys etc
  • Tin-foil or tin trays – i.e. disposable barbecue trays, take-away food containers
  • No meat, poultry or fish (raw or cooked) wrappers, trays or packaging
