Your recycling trolley is a weekly kerbside collection service for paper and card, plastics, cartons, cans and glass.
How to use your recycling trolley
Watch our video on how to use your recycling trolley.
Making sure the right material go into the correct containers is important - mixing materials lowers the quality, value and demand for collected materials from our re-processors.
The trolley, comprises three separate boxes which fit securely onto a wheeled base:
- Top box, which is secured by a lock, is for paper and cardboard
- Middle box is for mixed plastics, cartons and cans
- Bottom box is for mixed glass
Just like your green or brown bin, the recycling trolley can be wheeled to your usual collection point for emptying. The recycling trolley is collected weekly alongside food waste.
Plastic bags, plastic film such as food wrapping, sweetie papers and crisps bags, can't be recycled and should be placed in your green/grey wheeled bin (landfill waste).
And, if you use a plastic bag to store materials indoors, it would help us greatly if you could rip the bag open and place the contents into the correct part of the recycling trolley. Ideally, the only filled plastic bags we aim to collect are those used when the trolley compartment is already full.
Helping us in this way ensures that the collected materials can be recycled/reused.
