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.
Watch a video on how to use your bins.
