Rinse and take to your local collection point for recycling.
The only plastic we accept in our recycling bins is plastic bottles. Due to plastic packaging being a different type of plastic, please place in your household waste (black) bin.
If it is shiny, glittery or hard to tear, it is made from mixed paper and plastic or aluminium and cannot currently be recycled. Please place it in your household waste (black) bin.
Rinse and place in your black box or take to your nearest bottle bank.
Put in a clear (sandwich) bag and place on top of your glass bottles/jars in your black box and we will recycle them.
Donate any unwanted gifts/decorations to local charity shops, so they can be reused rather than disposed of.
