What can I recycle?

Simply fill up your clear recycling bag or food waste bags, for the Council to collect.

Please note: The Council is requesting that residents place all wrapping paper in a separate recycling bag – including glitter and foil wrapping paper.

Also... remember to wash food and drink containers before you put them into a recycling bag. This ensures items in the bag can be recycled as you intended, and that your waste isn’t wasted!
