The Borough Council runs a weekly recycling scheme which includes: mixed paper and card, food tins/drink cans, plastic bottles and aerosols (boxes containing carrier bags may not be collected.) These materials can be placed mixed together in black boxes which are available free from the Borough Council. The boxes should be placed out with your blue bags for collection in the same twin bodied vehicle. Glass and textiles should be taken to your nearest recycling station.
