Recycling Facts Wrexham

For many things in life, knowledge is key – and recycling is no different. The more you know, the better you’ll be at recycling…and with recycling, there’s definitely plenty to know.

So with this in mind, we’ve decided to post a recycling fact on our Facebook and Twitter pages each day, to help people understand recycling in Wrexham better.

We started this last week and we’ll continue to do this over the next couple of weeks too, so stay tuned for some more recycling facts…

But for now, here’s our first seven posts 🙂

Fact 1- All ready meal trays can be recycled with your other plastics at the kerbside in your green box/middle wheelie box, but please make sure they’re free from any food residue.

Fact 2- When you’re recycling tin cans, it makes it easier for us to recycle the tin lid if you put it inside your empty clean tin.

Fact 3- Got something going mouldy in your fridge? Pop it in a caddy liner and put it straight into your larger food caddy ready to be collected. Remember your caddy gets emptied every week…if you put it in your black bin, it’ll sit there for a couple of weeks and get stinky.

Fact 4- Do you know that we have three recycling centres in Wrexham where you can recycle many, many things, including car batteries?

Fact 5- We were recently asked, “can glass roll-on deodorant bottles be recycled?” The answer is YES, they can! Just pop them in your black recycling box/bottom wheelie box.

Fact 6- Butter and margarine tubs can be recycled with your other plastics at the kerbside in your green box/middle wheelie box.

Fact 7- Got an uneaten ready meal? All the food is recyclable in your food caddy, plus you can recycle any cardboard boxes and plastic trays too…just make sure they’re clean when you recycle them.
