What can I put in my recycling bag/bin?
It is very important that only items which can be recycled are put into your recycling bag/bin. Dealing with the wrong items is expensive and can sometimes lead to good recycling being sent for incineration.

Items that can't be put in your recycling bin/bag
Some of the items that can't be collected, but can still be recycled. You can take your clothes, shoes, books, aluminium foil and other items to one of over 75 recycling sites in the borough. There is also the Household Waste Recycling Centre on Wade Road which accepts an even greater range of recyclable material, including batteries, fluorescent lamps, wood and green garden waste.
