  • Recycling Tips

    Please don't put your recyclable items into plastic bags in the recycling bin. Instead place all recyclable items loose into your recycling bin. Put your METAL bottle tops and jam jar lids into an old can. When the can is half full, squash the top of the can so the contents are held in - then put it in your recycling bin.
