Shredded paper (please wrap inside other paper to stop it from flying away)
Things to remember
Rinse all plastic bottles and trays.
Keep items dry and your bin lid closed - If your recycling gets wet, the paper and cardboard will stick to any glass items. This means we cannot recycle these items anymore. Wet paper and cardboard can also stick to the machinery and clog up the system at the recycling plant. So we cannot take wet cardboard placed next to your bin either.
Remove and rinse lids - plastic lids can be put in the blue recycling bin separately.
No wet paper or cardboard should go in the bin.
Empty cans and bottles before recycling.
To save space - Flatten cardboard, cans, plastic bottles, and cartons.
Use your old washing up water to clean your tins, bottles, jars and plastics - that way you aren't using extra water. Rinsing out packaging that contained food, drinks or other residues helps prevent the load of recyclables becoming contaminated and rejected at the sorting facility. Rinsing materials also helps prevents flies and your bin getting dirty.
