Recycling guidance

Overview

Packaging identification logos

Residents are reminded that only specific items are suitable for the recycling scheme provided by the Borough Council. Please follow the recycling guidance sticker 'How to use your recycling bin' which should be attached to your recycling bin. If you do not see a sticker visible on your bin please contact us for a replacement, you can also visit what goes in my bins and more about domestic collections

Instructions on packaging may be different. Some packaging may state the item is recyclable, but that will only apply if local facilities include that type of product in the suitable item listing. If in doubt, then please use your refuse bin or alternatively contact us for advice.

Legislation

The council has always strived to increase the amount of recyclables collected and divert waste going to landfill unnecessarily. There is a directive from the European Union requiring improvements to the quality of recyclables to help protect natural resources and reduce use of virgin materials. This directive impacts on the range of items we can collect to ensure quality is achieved.
