Good feedback on recycle move

Since the beginning of June, residents have embraced the increased frequency of the service with 30 per cent of households opting to put their recycling bins out weekly.

The yellow-topped bin is a co-mingled bin for all dry recyclable materials such as paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and aluminium, which are baled and sold for reprocessing.

Items should be loose, not in plastic bags, and rinsed where possible.

This includes all glass, plastic containers (empty), including condiment bottles and empty plastic bags, cans and tins and paper products.

The green-topped bin is for organic materials, such as kitchen and household waste and smaller garden waste, which are processed into high quality compost used in local farming.

All food, organic and general household waste, grass clippings and small prunings go into the green-topped bin.
