How you recycle and what you put your recyclable items in has changed. This aims to reduce our impact on the environment, by increasing the amount of recycling we do in the borough and improving the quality of what we recycle.
What is changing
From 1 October 2023 you will need to separate your paper and cardboard out from your other recyclable items and place them in your new blue sack.
You should carry on using your blue-lidded recycling bin for all other mixed recycling (glass, cans, plastics and cartons).
All households, who currently have their own blue-lidded recycling bin, should now have received a free weatherproof and durable 90-litre blue sack for paper and cardboard items.
Your blue sack would have been left outside your property in a convenient place and a flyer would have come through the door.
If you use communal shared bins (often those who live in flats), you will not receive a blue sack and should continue to recycle paper and cardboard in the same way.
