What can I recycle?
Green bin users - recycling must be placed in your bin loose. Please do not use bin liners or bags for your recycling (unless you have been told to use pink sacks).
Pink sacks users - please do not leave sacks tied or hung on railings. Present them on the pavement, only on your collection day at 7am. You can collect more pink sacks from Muriel Matters House. If you have run out please do not use black bags, but you can use other plastic bags or sacks that can be identified as recycling.
What you can put in your green bin or pink sack:
All items need to be clean and dry.
