We accept the following for recycling:
- Water and soft drinks bottles
- Clean plastic bags
We do NOT accept the following for recycling in the plastic bottle banks:
- Food trays or containers
- Household cleaner/detergent bottles – these are hazardous and must be put in the containers located in the “Household Hazardous Waste” section of the centre
- Plastic baths
Please wash, squash and remove lids.
By squashing the bottles you can save storage space at home therefore saving trips to the centre. This also saves energy and protects the environment. The lids should be disposed of with your residual waste at home. To check whether a plastic item can be recycled look for a recycling code on the product.
Here are examples of products which can be manufactured from PET and HDPE, two particular types of recyclable plastic.
