What goes where now?
Christmas Recycling & Waste collections.
Throughout September and October every household received a new set of recycling bags which included a new 73L green bag for cardboard recycling. The existing 55L black box will just be for glass bottles and jars. There will be no change to the white bag, blue bag and food caddies.
Please make sure you put the correct items in your containers - this guide will help you. Sometimes the wrong thing ends up in the incorrect container; this will contaminate it, and can result in your recycling not being taken on your collection day.
Recycling is really important to the environment; it helps to save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and helps tackle climate change. It also helps to reduce the need for new products to be made from raw materials that we sometimes see on the shelves when we do our shopping. Its far better to recycle existing products than to damage land in the search for new raw materials. More and more people recycle everyday, which is helping to reduce the need for landfill. You can help do your bit by taking part in recycling.
Thank you for taking part!
