Global Recycling Day - 18 March 2021

Recycling can be confusing because services vary from area to area and not everything with a recycling symbol on it can be recycled in your kerbside collections, which is why we focus on the types of products you can recycle

Global Recycling Day - 18 March 2021

Here’s a reminder of what you can put in your purple top wheelie bin:

  • Plastic bottles
  • Yogurt pots
  • Margarine tubs
  • Glass
  • Foil
  • Cans
  • Aerosols


Recycling is one of the best things we can do to protect our natural resources. The more we can recycle and avoid putting in our red top bin, the more materials we have to create new products #GlobalRecyclingDay #SustainableTW
