What goes in which bin?

All items should be placed loose inside the blue bin and green box.

On recycling week, textiles should be presented next to your bin or box in a clear or translucent bag, tied up, so that crews can easily identify the contents. Our crews will not collect any textiles that are in Charity Textile Collection Bags, regardless of where they are left.
