Complete an order form or call us on 01926 412464. We are currently waiting for a new stock of red boxes and have a backlog of orders to complete so delivery is likely to take longer than normal. Thank you for your patience.
New plastics recycling scheme
As part of your recycling collections you can recycle your plastic pots, tubs and trays with your plastic bottles from 1st April 2013. Plastics recycling scheme.
What we collect and what to put where:
* Remember our crews sort your recycling by hand so please ensure all items presented are clean and safe *
Card and cardboard
Eg. Cereal boxes, kitchen & toilet roll inserts, greeting cards and food packaging. Please flatten all cardboard packaging. Large pieces of cardboard such as furniture packaging should be cut into sections no larger than 1m x 1m (3ft x 3ft) to ensure that they fit in the collection vehicle.
E.g. yoghurt and cream pots
E.g. ice cream and margarine tubs, fruit punnets, washing machine tablet/powder tubs
E.g. biscuit, cake and meat trays
E.g. drink bottles and detergent bottles
We can't collect black plastic, plastic film or wrappers, carrier bags, polystyrene, flower pots, coat hangers, toys or CD/DVD cases.

IN A BAG NEXT TO YOUR RED BOX
Clothes, hats, towels, sheets, blankets, duvet & pillow covers, curtains (In any condition). Textiles must be placed in a bag, (to keep them clean and dry) such as an old carrier bag, a labelled refuse sack or an unwanted charity bag turned inside out. PLEASE NOTE: We do not collect duvets or pillows.
Paired shoes, bags, belts (In any condition)
IN A SEALED CONTAINER NEXT TO YOUR RED BOX
Used Engine in a sealed container.
Here's an example of how you can separate your red box:
Your recycling crew really appreciate it if your recycling is separated. The example opposite shows how you can separate PAPER, GLASS and CANS in just 1 box. Place your papers/ magazines in the middle of the box as a divider then put cans/ foil/ aerosols on one side and glass bottles/ jars on the other.
The crew sort your recycling by hand, therefore please ensure it is clean and safe to handle.
Have you got your kitchen caddy yet? The caddy can be lined with paper or paper liners and this can then be emptied into your green bin. We now also accept compostable liners
Caddies can be ordered via our order form or by calling us on 01926 412464.
