Please do not use black bin bags in your blue bin(s). Please put recycling items into your blue bin loose or use clear plastic bags that you can see through.
This is because we are having more and more loads of recycling rejected by our recycling partners due to black bin bags.
Our recycling partners process thousands of tonnes of waste from council areas across the country and if they see a black bin bag they will reject a load. This is because they cannot tell what is in it. If this happens, an entire truck load of recycling is sent to landfill instead of being recycled.
We are putting stickers on your blue bin lids to remind you not to use black bin bags.
Please help us to recycle as much as possible by not using black bin bags in your blue bin(s) and put items in loose or in clear plastic bags only. Find out more.
