Recycling Tub Plastic

We’ve just posted our final round of recycling facts on our Facebook and Twitter pages, so in case you missed any of these, here’s our last seven recycling facts 🙂

Fact 1- Clear plastic Indian/Chinese food containers can be recycled with your other plastics at the kerbside in your green box/middle wheelie box. Just make sure they’re free from any food residue.

Fact 2- Did you know that there’s a Reuse Shop at Bryn Lane Recycling Centre that’s run by a great local charity? Whether you’re donating or buying, it all goes to a wonderful cause.

Fact 3- Having a barbecue? Take your food caddy outside with you and pop any bones or leftovers inside as you go along. It makes cleaning up afterwards much easier…just make sure you shut the lid to avoid any pesky flies.

Fact 4- Tooth paste tubes CAN’T be recycled at the kerbside. Please place these in your general waste.
