What should I recycle?

The Council encourages residents to reduce, reuse and recycle as much household rubbish as possible.

Recycling rubbish conserves resources, saves energy and helps protect the environment by reducing the amount of rubbish in landfill sites.


You can use the green bins, food waste containers, compost bins, garden cuttings collection service etc. provided to recycle your rubbish.

If you live in a block of flats, you can recycle your rubbish using the Council provided communal facilities.  If you misuse the recycling bins and put the wrong things in them, they become contaminated. This could lead to an increase in your service charge.
