Blue bins, bags and containers
Your blue bin is for paper and card. Things you can put in it include:
- Cardboard boxes
- Paper and shredded paper
- Newspaper, magazines and catalogues
- Unwanted books
- Envelopes and junk mail
- Greetings cards and wrapping paper (without glitter)
- Drinks cartons (Tetra Pak)
- Toilet and kitchen roll tubes
Please ensure you crush down boxes and large bits of cardboard to fit as much in your bins as possible.
If you are still unsure, Recycle for Greater Manchester has more information on what to do with different items.
