What can and can't go into your recycling wheelie bin

Recycling search tool.png

You can recycle plastic, glass, metal and cardboard packaging containers from the kitchen, bathroom and laundry as well as paper from home.

Please don't put plastic bags into your new recycling wheelie bin - they get caught in the sorting machine. You can now drop these to collection points at local participating retailers.

Please note:

- rinse all containers

- leave the lids on all bottles and containers

- containers should be no larger than 4 litres

Include paper, cardboard and milk & juice cartons, e.g Tetra Pak cartons, in your recycling bin.
