Plastic & cans and paper & cardboard bins

The orange plastic & can recycling bins and blue paper & cardboard recycling bins at Recycling Points are collected by a different vehicle to your household bins. You may notice that these bins are collected by the same vehicle at Recycling Points. Please continue to separate into plastics & can and paper & cardboard recycling bins as these bins may not always be collected together in the same vehicle.

The material from these bins is bulked and collected by a reprocessor who seperate the material into plastic, can, paper and cardboard for recycling.
