GreenBox currently collects;
Unlike most local councils we collect more types of plastics. Bottles, take away trays, fruit punnets, shampoo bottles and other plastic packaging and much more.We take all PET (recycling symbol 1), HDPE (2) some V (type 3) and PP(5) plastics.
If you are unsure a simple test is to bend the plastic, if it doesn't shatter then, we will probably take it. Please squish and flatten all bottles where possible.
Including newspapers, magazines, writing paper, envelopes, junk mail, telephone directories. Can now be mixed with cardboard.
All types including cereal boxes, egg cartons, postcard etc. Please flatten all boxes. Can be mixed with paper.
We take both aluminium drink cans and steel food tins. These can be mixed. Please rinse and flatten/crush.
We take all glass jars and bottles. Rinsed and lids removed. If you only have a few, you can leave these in the box without putting in separate bag.
Aluminium Inludes pre-prepared food containers and glass milk bottle tops. It is very important that the foil is clean. Dirty foil can't be recycled.
Clean unwanted clothes, bags, shoes.
Cartons (Tetra Packs)
Juice cartons, milk cartons. Please rinse and flatten and remove plastic lids.
