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, shredded paper and telephone directories (including yellow pages)
- cardboard such as greetings cards, books and clean packaging (food and non-food)
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
- juice cartons etc - our current contractor doesn't accept them
We recommend you put your house number on your wheelie bins.
