New: recycling of plastics and batteries

Plastics and batteries now collected
From 31 January, you can recycle plastic bottles and household batteries at your kerbside.

If you live in an area with the red and blue kerbside recycling service, you will receive a calendar and reusable plastic bag in the next few days.

Use the reusable plastic bag for plastic bottles and place at the kerbside with your red box.
For household batteries, place them in a sealed clear plastic bag, for example a freezer bag, and put them in your blue box.

Remember that the Green Box Day website gives details of your collection days and will even send you a reminder email. The Council's recycling website provides more information.
