Additional recycling

  • We will take up to three clear plastic bags of extra recycling on your recycling collection day.
  • Bags MUST be clear and see-through so recycling is visible for our collectors.

More information on what can be recycled is available on the Recycling page of the website. Information is also available about Christmas tree recycling points, available from 26 December to 06 January 2019.
