Recycling Bins

It has been reported by the maintenance team that the refuse is not being put correctly into the bins located in the bin sheds.

For reference, here is what goes into each bin

  • Blue Bin  -    plastic bottles, tin cans, paper and cardboard only
  • Grey Bin  -   only food which has already been placed in recyclable food bags can be placed in this bin
  • Black Bin -   Glass Only

Please ensure that refuse is correctly put into the bins and not left at the side as it attracts unwanted visitors. Any bins that have rubbish which is not meant to be in it will not be recycled and unfortunately it will go in to landfill.
