What do I do with my plastics?

What do I do with my plastics?

Clean plastic bottles and containers from your kitchen, laundry and bathroom will now make up the bulk of items in your recycling bin – common, everyday items such as shampoo bottles, laundry and detergent containers, juice, milk and water bottles. Please remove lids – they can't go in your yellow recycling bin. 

In order to reduce contamination which will make the bin contents unusable, it’s best to rinse all containers and remove labels and lids.  

Continue to recycle clean, empty cans and aluminium, as well as your newspapers and cardboard. 

And remember, if in doubt – take it out.
