Food and drink
Plastic bottles can go straight into your recycling box or bin. Give them a quick rinse and remove any plastic tops or lids.
Drinks cans, food tins and glass bottles and jars can also go in your recycling box or bin along with egg boxes, cardboard sleeves for food packaging and all tin biscuit boxes.
Remember to keep your glass in a separate recycling box or bag so it doesn’t contaminate the other materials.
Wrapping paper and cardboard
Please only recycle wrapping paper - foil or paper covered in glitter can’t be recycled.
Flatten any cardboard boxes and paper bags to make space in your recycling bins and boxes. You can also visit a community recycling point or one of the city's two recycling centres.
You can recycle your Christmas tree at various sites across the city. These will be open between Wednesday 27 December and Friday 12 January.
Thank you for recycling!
