Bin collections

Blue bin - paper and card

The following items can be put in your blue recycling bin:

  • paper such as newspapers, magazines, catalogues, letters, leaflets, envelopes, office paper, wrapping paper and telephone directories (including yellow pages)
  • cardboard such as greetings cards, books and clean packaging (food and non-food cartons)

Please ensure all material is clean and dry - believe it or not, when it's damp bacteria can start to break it down, generating heat which poses a risk of fire.

DO NOT put the following items in your blue recycling bin:

  • plastic bags
  • nappies
  • Tetrapak cartons and other foil lined cartons - our current contractor doesn't accept them

We recommend you put your house number on your wheelie bins.
