  • Recycling Tips

    1. Remember to remove the lids from jars and bottles before putting them in your recycling bin. 2. Glass other than jars and bottles, such as ovenproof glass, glassware, window glass, etc cannot be recycled so dispose of it as household waste. 3. When putting your recyclables into your recycling bin, don't put them in plastic/ garbage bags. These bags cannot be recycled and contaminate the collections.
