Recycling FAQs

Why can I not recycle cardboard in the green bin anymore?

Anything sent to be recycled in the green bin is chargeable by the tonne, so we were paying for the cardboard to be recycled. We can now claim revenue back for our dry recycling (black box, blue bag, pink bag) so by moving the cardboard into the black box we save on the cost of recycling and also get revenue back.

All revenue from the recycling service is being used as savings to combat the budget cuts.
