Small waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) such as kettles, toasters and mobile phones. Loose cables (mobile phone and computer cables) can also be recycled in your green/black recycling box. All items should be no larger than a standard-sized carrier bag

Kitchen waste

All your food waste including cooked and uncooked scraps, tea bags, coffee grounds, fruit and veg peelings, bread, pasta, cereals, egg shells, dairy products, bones, plate scrapings, meat and fish should be placed into your kerbside caddy. This is sent to an anaerobic digestion plant where it is converted into electricity. Food waste cannot be taken to the recycling centre.


Unwanted kitchen knives should be put in your black wheelie bin, but please package the knives securely so as not to cause injury to anyone. One way of doing this is by cutting open the top of a flexible plastic drink bottle and place the knives inside, points downwards after wrapping them in newspaper first. This can then safely be put in the bin.

Metal knives can also be taken to your local recycling centre and placed in the skip for scrap metal. Please do not put them out for collection with your household recycling.
