What items can I recycle?


Recycling can seem really confusing and staying up to date is a big challenge! What you can put in your recycling bin depends on which items your local council accepts. But did you know there are innumerable ways to recycle items that don’t below in your kerbside recycling bin?

Tennis balls, coffee cups, plant pots, computer keyboards and seedling trays can all now be recycled at local collection points. Items that are composed of valuable materials like metals, leather, and even plastic shouldn’t be wasted in landfill.
