Blue recycling bin
These are collected every 2 weeks.
What goes in your blue bin
Please quickly 'wash and squash' recyclable plastics, foil and cartons to reduce contamination and to free up space.
Black plastic goes in green general waste bins
Black plastic is not currently recycled as sorting equipment cannot detect the carbon black pigment. Please put any black plastic in your green general waste bin.
For more information about plastic recycling, visit the re3 website.
Glass goes in bottle banks
We don’t collect glass along with other recyclable items because broken or ground glass makes paper and card unrecyclable.
When the government has passed the Environment Bill there will be statutory guidance on glass collection. At this point we will assess options for glass recycling.
In the meantime please take your glass to your local bottle bank.
