What can I put in my recycling bag/bin?
We want to help you recycle as much as you possibly can and waste less. Look out for this recycling booklet coming through your doors in March. Do let us know if you need this information in a different format, for example large print, CD or braille.
Items that can be put in your recycling bin/bag
There is so much you can do to reduce your waste. Take a look below at all the items you can recycle.
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, can still be recycled. You can take your clothes, shoes, books, aluminium foil and other items to one of our 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.
