How to recycle

Lets all work together to recycle to reduce waste in our environment.

Here are some handy tips for recycling waste:

Things that can be recycled include: newspaper, cardboard, office paper, magazines, junk mail, glass bottles, jars, steel and aluminium cans, aerosols, juice and milk cartons as well as all plastic bottles and containers marked 1,2,3,4,5,6 (no lids).

Do not put plastic bags, film, ceramics, ovenproof glass or general household in your recycling bin.

Make sure all lids are off all containers and drain out any liquids.

Domestic recycling only is allowed in your recycling bin.

Never place the following in your recycling bin:

  • Car motors or parts
  • Hot ashes
  • Oil or liquid waste
  • Chemicals
  • Large tree branches
