Cardboard and cartons can be put together in the green bag or green box

Cardboard needs to be flattened and cut down to no larger than the green box

Your recycling should be sorted in the green boxes i.e. keep plastics, cans, aerosols and foil separate from cardboard and cartons; paper separate from glass etc

Nappy bags for disposable nappy waste can be put out with the black bin on collection day, leaving more space in the bin for normal household waste. Discounted reusable nappy kits to help reduce non-recyclable waste have been introduced

Most of the extra household waste produced over Christmas and New Year is recyclable, so make the most of your weekly collections for food waste, glass bottles and jars, cardboard and cartons, cans, foil and aerosols, plastic bottles, tubs and trays, paper, small electrical items and old clothes and shoes

Wrapping paper (without glitter or plastic) can be recycled alongside other paper, greetings cards (without glitter or plastic) and cardboard. Real Christmas trees can be recycled with the garden waste service or can be taken to a Sort It recycling centre
