Dealing with these items can be dangerous, as well as taking up valuable staff time and storage space.REMEMBER - WHEN IN DOUBT THROUGH IT OUT - into the red-lid, general-waste bin.Unfortunately we currently cannot take soft plastic packaging, plastic bags, plastic film and strapping as there is currently no market for these plastics. Also, if these items come through your yellow-lid bin they become stuck in our sorting machinery. WE CAN TAKE the following CLEAN containers through your kerbside, yellow-lid recycling bin:- PET (Plastic ID Code No.1) e.g. soft-drink bottles - HDPE (Plastic ID Code No. 2) e.g. milk, juice, cream and coloured plastic bottles. Please remove lids from bottles and place in recycling bin- PP (Plastic ID Code No. 5) e.g. ice cream containers and lids- glass bottles and jars (no glass ovenware, drinking glasses, microwave glass turntables, window or windscreen glass as they have a different melting point and if mixed with other glass will ruin the recycling process when batches are melted). Remove lids from glass jars and aerosol cans and place in yellow-lid bin too.- aluminium, steel and aerosol cans (please don't flatten these containers as it reduces the effectiveness of sorting machinery such as magnets and eddy-current separators, and they can become hidden in newspaper or cardboard).- aluminium foil, if clean and squashed into a ball (with a minimum size of a very large orange) so it can be removed by our machinery. Flat sheets and small amounts of foil cannot be sorted by the eddy current so they contaminate other products or fall off the sorting belt and go to landfill.You can take your E-waste or household recycling to Gregadoo Waste Management Centre at no cost.
