Reducing waste at home

Make full use of your recycling collection service

Save room in your household rubbish bin by recycling everything that you can:

  • plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays, metal tins, cans, empty aerosols, clean foil, glass bottles and jars in your blue wheelie bin

  • paper and card in your blue bag



Make room

Squashing recyclable material to make room in your recycling bin and bag.

Wash and squash:

  • crush cans
  • squash plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays
  • break cardboard down and flatten



There is no bin in fashion!

Donate your unwanted textiles and clothes instead of throwing them away. Find out where you can take them to be recycled and reused.
