NB: No plastic bags. Only use the free liners we provide
We struggle to find a plastics recycling company that will take these but many supermarkets have drop off points (includes bread wrappers, etc.)
Crisp packets and pet food pouches are actually a metal style plastic film which can’t be recycled. Even though it looks shiny its not metal.
We don’t collect hard plastic because we would have to separate out every piece from every other kind of plastic. Hard plastic can be recycled at the council recycling centre on Docks Way.
Broken glass is dangerous for our collectors as they put their hands in your boxes. If its on the top it may seem like just one broken glass to you but we do not know what else might be below.
TV’s and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste due to some of the chemicals used in them. They can, however, be be taken for recycling down at the council recycling centre on Docks Way.
Like TVs, light bulbs are classified as hazardous waste and they break very easily. Lightbulbs, including large flourescent tubes, can be recycled down at the council recycling centre on Docks Way.
Plant pots and trays are hard plastic and we have the same problems as noted above. They can be recycled down at the council recycling centre on Docks way.
Wood is too bulky for us to collect but can be taken to the council recycling centre where it is sent to be recycled into wood chip products.
While the outside material might be reuseable, the filling is not.
Small batteries. are classed as hazardous but most large supermarkets have battery recycling boxes.
