New kerbside collections of small rechargeable electricals for recycling
New kerbside collections of ‘small rechargeable electricals’ for recycling commencing from 5 June 2023.
This is to reduce risk of fires and injuries that can be caused when these items are disposed of inappropriately.
Textiles and shredded paper will no longer be collected for recycling via the kerbside scheme.
Textiles and clothing that are not suitable for resale or reuse should be put in the general waste bin where they will be used for energy recovery.
Instead of putting shredded paper in the blue-lidded bin it can be composted at home, taken to a household recycling centre, or it can be put in the general household waste bin for energy recovery.
