Recycling the right things from all over your home saves your council money, is better for the environment and means more space in your general waste bin!

Most people know that plastic bags can’t be recycled so don’t put their mixed recycling in one. Put things in clean and loose.



Other plastic items from the bathroom, like old toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes and lids, can’t be recycled because they are made of low grade plastic. Find out why this matters here.
