What happens to our plastic recycling?
- Recycling box – paper and cardboard
Please flatten card and cardboard and place it in your recycling box. Excess cardboard can be left out in pieces reduced down to approximately the size of your green box. Please place it tidily underneath or next to your recycling box on your collection day. Packaging from large appliances and household goods, will not be collected unless it has been flattened and folded to approximately the size of the recycling box.
