The blue box is the container for all your paper, small electrical appliances and unwanted clothing and textiles.  Please make sure that shredded paper is tied in a bag to prevent any mess.  Tear up or shred anything which may breach your privacy, like bank account details, your name or address. Unwanted electrical appliances need to fit in a carrier bag, and can include microwaves, radios, power tools, hairdryers and so on. Any unwanted clothing or textiles (such as towels and sheets) should be tied in a bag as it’s important to keep them dry.  Clothing and textiles are accepted if damaged or in poor condition, but must be clean.

Use this online form to order replacement containers.
