What items go in the blue-lidded bin?
Blue lidded bins are for general dry recycling
Please recycle the following:
- Plain paper
- Wrapping paper (plain only, no glitter or foil)
- Greetings cards (plain only, no glitter or badges)
- Clean aluminium foil
- Plastic bottles (including items from the bathroom such as shampoo and shower gel bottles)
- Food tins
- Drinks cans
- Food and drink cartons (Tetra pak)
- Plastic pots, tubs and trays (no carrier bags, salad or bread bags)
- Glass bottles and jars
Ensure that you empty out any liquid and rinse food or drink residue. This makes it easier for the staff at the recycling centre who sort through the recycling.
Unfortunately we can't collect a bin if it has the wrong items in it. We can't recycle carrier/plastic bags or any plastic that can be scrunched in your hand such as salad bags, so please keep them out of your blue-lidded bin. 5 ways to reduce single use plastic.
