Recycling roadshow to cut plastics confusion

As a nation we consume many products in plastic packaging throughout our daily lives, from food and drink to beauty and toiletries.

Knowing what plastics can and can’t be recycled in the burgundy bin can be confusing. Our recycling team will be out on a recycling roadshow to help cut the confusion; offering advice on recycling and reducing waste.

Come along and take part in the recycling challenge to find out what to put in and what to keep out of your recycling containers. Participating residents can enter the draw to win a waste reducing hamper of goodies, donated by our local Asda store.
