You can recycle much more than you thought. Feel guilty when you drop the soft plastics that the council won’t take in the bin? Here’s a list of what you can collect to recycle and a map of where to take it.
They can accept all the following items for recycling:
Reusable carrier shopping bags (100% polypropylene); Carrier Bags; Bread, pasta & rice bags; Fresh produce bags and Netting citrus bags; Frozen food bags (frozen vegetable, fries, burgers, nuggets, poultry etc.); Confectionery wrap and lolly bags; Dairy wrappers; Plastic packaging around toilet paper, kitchen towels, nappies and sanitary products; Courier packs; Newspaper wrap; Chocolate & muesli bar wrappers and Biscuit packets (wrapper only); Silver-lined chip & cracker packets; Squeeze pouches; Sturdy pet food bags; Ice cream wrappers; Cereal box liners; Bubble wrap and large sheets of plastic that furniture comes wrapped in (cut into pieces the size of an A3 sheet of paper first).
