What goes in where?


Remember to wash and squash your recyclable items before placing them in the trolley box. This will maximise the space in your trolley box and ensure your boxes are emptied.

If the recyclable items presented are dirty or have any food residue on them, the Council’s waste collection contractor will not empty the recycling boxes and they will be left to be collected the following week (subject to all items being clean).
