Recycle more at the kerbside from 25th September 2017

2017 will see an increase in the range of recyclables that can be taken at the kerbside.

Households will be able to use their boxes and bags to collect card, paper, cartons (tetra pak), aerosols, most plastics, cans and glass on a fortnightly basis.

Glass must be kept separate from everything else - this can be done using a divider in your current green box or by using an additional black box.   Textiles can also be recycled. 

More detailed information is below however look out for your leaflet through your letterbox during September for more information.
