Recycling is collected every 2 weeks. The recycling bins with a blue lid should be put out by 6:30am on your collection day. If you need a bin with a blue lid you can order new or replacement bins. What can and can't go in the recycling bin Yes please: dry paper dry cardboard metal tins or cans foil some plastic items: bottles, trays, pots, tubs glass bottles and jars No thanks: plastic bags, cellophane and polystyrene black bin bags or bin liners food and drink cartons tissues and wipes greasy pizza boxes coffee cups plant pots nappies Not sure which bin to use? Check what goes in which bin. Cardboard Cardboard that won’t fit into your bin should be flattened and tied in a bundle. Please leave this next to your bin. To keep it dry, you can put it in a clear bag (not a black or coloured bag). Put any cardboard stained or dirty with foodstuffs, grease, paint or dirt in your rubbish bin - this cannot be recycled. Items that can't go in recycling or rubbish bins Some items that can’t go in your recycling or rubbish bin can be taken to a community recycling centre. Missed collections You can report a missed bin collection online. Terms and conditions For recycling terms and conditions, see the wheeled bin policy.
