Paper & Cardboard

Paper and cardboard can be recycled and therefore should be placed in your blue recycling bin.

Please use the green household waste bin for cardboard that is soiled (e.g. greasy pizza boxes or cake boxes covered with cream).

For those households included in the paper and cardboard trial you should place all paper and cardboard waste into your purple paper and card bin for separate collection

Other recycling options: Paper and cardboard can also be used for home composting. Compost heaps need wet and dry ingredients. Paper counts as dry and helps when there is a high proportion of kitchen waste, lawn clippings or other ‘wet’ green material.
