Re-cycling advice for your kerbside collections
Cards and wrapping
- You can recycle your plain cards and paper based wrapping with your cardboard in your green recycling box. Shiny plastic wrapping must be put in your black bin.
- You can now recycle your clean foil pie cases, kitchen foil and foil lids from cream tubs in your black recycling box. Some other waste such as some gift wrapping paper, looks like foil but it’s not! We don’t collect crisp packets, sweet wrappers and shiny plastic gift wrap. Please put these in your black bin.
Cardboard - Too much cardboard to fit in your green recycling box? Fold, flatten or tear larger boxes to fit in your green box. Remember we collect recycling every week so you can put it out over a couple of collections. Large amounts of cardboard can be taken to your nearest recycling bank.
Glass jars/bottles & plastic bottles/containers - Please wash your items first but then replace the lids on if they can be screwed back on. In the case of the plastic ones, please squash them first and then put the lid back on. (This helps condense the item for collection).
- Recycle all your veg peelings and food scraps in your food waste container and we’ll collect it weekly. Don’t waste your leftovers, look up some recipes to give you some ideas.
