The website has loads of information to answer your questions, including:

  • what do I do if my bin was missed or is broken?
  • what can I put in my recycling bin?
  • what happens after recyclable material is collected?
  • what is the difference between the types of plastic?
  • maybe you want to learn more about composting or how to make your home more sustainable?
