We cannot collect any of the following in your recycling bin:

Extra recycling or cardboard
If you have extra cardboard you can leave it loose next to your bin on your collection day. Make sure it is broken down, flattened and no more than a recycling box could hold. If you have more cardboard than the size of a recycling box then you can put it in your blue bin over a few weeks.
We will collect any extra recycling (except glass) in a clear plastic bag that has been left next to your bin.
