The yellow recycling bin is collected every two weeks. It is important to check what can be disposed of in the bin as many products are recyclable but are not able to be processed at the recycling facility.
A common mistake made with plastic bottles and containers is leaving the tops and lids on. We advise that you keep recycling:
Lids and bottle tops are often made from a different type of plastic and contaminate the recyclable product. Remove lids and place in the red bin.
Food and drink residue contaminate recyclable material. A quick rinse before placing in the recycling bin is greatly appreciated.
Plastic bottles and containers are sorted using an optical sorter, which identifies the shape of the product. Sorters are unable to open individual bags of recycling so keep recycling loose and unsquashed in the bin.
Use the Wheelie Bins App to find out what goes in each bin.
