Remember, "recycling" requires an unsustainable amount of oil/diesel to be used by the council and their contractors.  
Please compost at home and leave as much packaging with retailers as possible.

Examples of what can be recycled: 

  • Paper: Newspapers, magazines, telephone directories, brochures and junk mail

  • Glass: Clean jars and bottles eg sauce, jam, beer and wine bottles

  • Cans: Clean food and drink cans eg baked beans, soft drinks (wash and squash)

  • Clean plastics only, e.g. pop, milk, water, shampoo, detergent), please squash.

  • All clean food containers (eg butter, yoghurt pots, ready meals, fruit punnets).

  • Cardboard: must be flattened and any packaging must be removed.

  • Garden waste : Grass / Hedge cuttings,  Prunings, leaves, plants and flowers and Non-invasive weeds

  • Aerosols: they must be empty but may include furniture polish, hair spray and deodrants

  • Cartons: such as fruit juice, milkshakes and fruit, please rinse them

  • Clean foil: please remove all traces of food and chemicals before adding them to your container

Place in either disposable biodegradable sacks or new re-usable fabric bags; both can be bought from council offices. (Biodegradable 3 for £1 / re-usable £1 each). Bags will be collected once every 2 weeks on the same day as plastic/cardboard.
