What goes into your recycling 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 recycling wheelie bin - they get caught in the sorting machine.

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 and juice cartons, e.g Tetra Pak cartons, in your recycling bin.
