What goes in your bins
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
If you are using the new system please view our new recycling system section for details of what goes in your bins.
