What goes in which bin?

Find out what goes in each bin.

All items should be placed loose inside the blue bin and green box. Textiles should be presented, on recycling week, next to your bin or box in a tied clear or translucent bag so that crews can easily identify contents.

Our crews will not collect any textiles that are in Charity Textile Collection Bags regardless of where they are left.
