Recycling plastic

All types of plastic bottles can be recycled in your kerbside recycling bin - this includes drink bottles, shampoo bottles and cleaning product bottles – but it would help us if you could remove the lids first.

All other types of plastic packaging CANNOT currently be recycled in your recycling bin but plastic pots, tubs and trays and cartons can be recycled in one of the mixed plastic recycling banks at a ‘bring’ site or they need to go into your green-lidded general waste bin for disposal.

Check out our A-Z recycling guide for more details on what can and cannot be recycled.
