Blue bins, bags and containers
Your blue bin is for paper and card. Things you can put in it include:
- Cardboard - including egg boxes and pizza boxes
- Newspapers, magazines and catalogues
- Food and drink cartons - including juice boxes
- Travel tickets (for bus, tram, train)
- Greetings cards
- Flyers, leaflets and pamphlets
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.
