How to deal with waste if you are self-isolating
Weekly mixed recycling bin
Your green recycling bin is ONLY for:
NO GLASS, NO FOOD, NO TEXTILES. NO FOIL (recycle clean foil at the Community Recycling Centre, Blenheim Road. NO CARTONS (we regret that we can't recycle cartons any more because there is no longer a viable recycling market)
Put recycling in your bin loose, not bagged. It's easier and cheaper to sort them out afterwards, and recycling companies know that bags can often hide non-recyclables, so may reject loads with plastic bags in. Why is it OK to put plastic bags in food waste but not in the green recycling bin?
If you have too much recycling for your bin you can leave it next to your bin in a labelled, clear bag and we will take it, like this:
Large pieces of cardboard, such as packaging from a new TV, can be left next to your bin and we will take it.
