Anything with a number 1, 2 or 5 within the recycling triangle can go into your recycling bin, including:
- Yoghurt pots,
- Margarine tubs
- Meat, fruit and vegetable trays of any shape or colour, along with their lids.
- No wrappers! Please put wrappers, film and plastic bags in your general waste bin, not in the recycling bin
The colour and shape of the container doesn't matter - the main thing is to check that that it can be recycled, and give it a rinse. If the plastic still has food waste on it, or is covered in plastic film, it can cause a problem as it goes through our recycling system and could end up not be recycled at all.
