The following is what can go in your pink recycling sack:
 
Paper and cardboard including:
• newspapers and magazines
• catalogues and directories
• writing/typing paper
• leaflets
• cards
• cardboard – if you can fit it in your sack. Otherwise, please take it to a Community Recycling Centre
• paper envelopes without windows or padding
 
Cans and tins including:
• food tins
• drink cans
• pet food tins
• sweet/biscuit tins
• metal lids from bottles and jars
 
Plastic bottles and containers (washed with lids removed) including:
• drinks bottles
• detergent and bleach bottles
• milk bottles
• yoghurt pots and margarine tubs
• rigid meat trays and fruit punnets
• ready meal containers
• plastic bottle caps/lids
 
Aluminium including:
• clean aluminium foil
• clean aluminium trays
 
Food and drink cartons (sometimes called Tetrapak) including:

Please recycle you glass bottles and jars (without lids or corks) in your blue box.
 
 
Green Bin:
 
Please put you left over food, cooked or uncooked in your green bin – not your black sack.
