Red recycling box - plastic and metal cans
What do I recycle in the new red recycling box?
The red recycling box is for all plastic drinks bottles, shampoo/shower gel bottles, cleaning product bottles (e.g. bathroom/kitchen cleaners, bleach) yogurt and soup pots, margarine, butter and ice cream tubs. You should also put drink cans, food tins, aluminium foil, aluminium foil trays (e.g. take-away trays) into your red recycling box.
We cannot collect any of the following items from your red box as these cannot be recycled: plastic carrier bags, ANY plastic wrapping and packaging (e.g. crisp packets, plastic bread bags, plastic nappy packaging etc.). Please put these non-recyclable items in your black wheelie bin.
