White bag

Don't forget to wash and squash!

You can put the following items in your white bag:

  • Plastic bottles (take lid off if not squashed, or squash and put the lid back on so it stays flat in your recycling bag and gives you more room) (the newer bottles with plastic lids attached can be used in the same way, squash and put lid back on)
  • Yoghurt pots 
  • Butter/margarine tubs     
  • Plastic food trays      
  • Drinks cans      
  • Food cans
  • Empty aerosol cans
  • Clean aluminium foil

Please do not put these items in your white bag as it will be contaminated and it will not be emptied:

  • Tetra Pak cartons (these go in your brown bin or to a Household Waste Recycling Centre)
  • Plastic wrapping including bubble wrap (check recycle now for your local drop off point) 
  • Plant pots (all types) (please put in your brown bin)
  • Polystyrene (please put in your brown bin, in a bag, so it doesn't stick to the bin with the static)
  • Plastic bags
  • Plastic film

You can now Repeat the Cycle and take your plastic packing to any local supermarket, soft plastic, plastic bags and wrapping, plastic films, flexible plastics, what ever you would like to call them! To find your nearest supermarket location that is taking part you just put your postcode in and you can choose where to take them!
