A disposable coffee cup is made from paper but has a plastic lining that is difficult to remove, so coffee cups must go in your black bin.
Carrier Bags / Refuse Sack
Plastic bags get tangled in the machines and slow down work on the sorting lines as people must empty them.
We do not have the technology to recycle soft plastics such as wrappers.
Paper Towels / Napkins
These items are usually made from recycled paper that can only be recycled a limited number of times. You can put them in your compost bin.
Glass is 100% recyclable, however, glass does not go in the recycle bin. Glass should be placed in glass/bottle banks.
Aluminium Foil & Trays
Food can be difficult to clean off used foil and trays so it’s best to put them in your black bin.
Dirty Pizza Boxes
Food stained paper should go in the general waste or compost bin as food is a major contaminant in paper recycling.
