  • Recycling Tips

    Reduce waste by choosing products that are reusable, recycled, repairable, refillable and recyclable. All recycling should be free of food, but it doesn't need to be rinsed out. Only put your recycling bin out for collection when it is full. Remember: Squeeze it! Squash it! Flatten it! to maximise space in your recycling bin.
