WHICH BIN? THE YELLOW BIN

Rigid plastic containers

Juice and milk cartons

Tins
and cans

Glass bottles and jars

Aluminium foil and trays

Aerosols (empty)

NO light globes

NO clothing or fabric

NO e-waste or batteries

NO soft plastics

NO polystyrene foam

Empty, clean and dry materials only.

 

Lids, bread tags, pen lids, bottle tops and other smaller items can be collected in a larger
container of the same material type.

 

No plastic bags. Even when they have recyclable items in them, plastic bags and all their contents will be sent to landfill.

 

Soft plastics are a huge problem for recycling sorting facilities because they are light and flat, they can get caught in machinery and also contaminate the paper stream.

 

Please recycle soft plastics (plastic bags, chip packets etc) through your local supermarket drop
off point.
