By sorting your recycling properly, you’re helping us to recycle as much as possible. Remember your recycling should be:
Lids and bottle tops are often made from a different type of plastic and contaminate the recyclable product. Remove lids and place in the red bin.
Food and drink can contaminate recyclable material, please give items a quick rinse before placing in the recycling bin.
Loose and uncrushed
Plastic bottles and containers are sorted using an optical sorter, which identifies the shape of the product.
Sorters are unable to open individual bags of recycling so keep recycling loose and uncrushed in the bin. Remember plastic bags go in the red bin.
