What can be recycled

Information on what can be recycled.

If you can't reduce or reuse an item, can it be recycled or, if it is organic material like grass cuttings or vegetable food scrapings, composted?

Recycling means using valuable raw materials like glass, paper, tin and aluminium over and over again so we don't always have to make them from scratch.

Using the right containers

Can the item be reused?

There are many schemes that reuse or refurbish goods like washing machines, furniture, plastic bags and wood.
