What can be recycled at a Local Recycling Centre?
Glass Bottles and Jars
Green, clear or brown glass. If you have blue glass, put it in the green glass bank. No ceramics, pyrex, wine glasses, spectacles or window panes.
To test if the foil is aluminium foil, scrunch it up in your hand. If it springs back then it is not suitable for recycling as it is a plastic foil.
Periodicals, magazines, CDs, DVDs and pre-recorded audio and video cassettes.
Clothing, footwear (in pairs), bedding, towelling and blankets.
Paper, Card, Plastic Bottles, Cans & Tins
These are the same items that we collect from your brown bin.
