Please note: Recycling should not be presented in black bags/plastic bags. Please place your recycling material in the bin loose.
Please rinse and squash the plastic bottles and cans. You can put the lids back onto the bottles. Please also rinse glass bottles, jars and cartons.
These items are compacted on the lorry to save space and reduce environmental and financial costs of transporting. They are taken to a Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) where they are separated and sent on for reprocessing.
Please note that you can put all recyclable materials in either the blue or green recycling boxes.
