Aerosol cans

Empty uncrushed aluminium and steel aerosol cans can be recycled in your mixed recycling bin at your home.

They can also be taken for recycling at your nearest Recycling Centre.

To note - Please do not squash or pierce aerosols.


Aluminium cans

Aluminium can be recycled time and time again.

This saves natural resources and energy. Aluminium cans can be recycled in your mixed recycling bin at home. They can also be taken to you nearest Recycling Centre.


Aluminium foil

Items such as clean food trays, foil wrapping on biscuits and milk tops can be recycled in your mixed recycling bin at home.

This does NOT include foil wrapped crisp packets or pet food pouches.

You can also recycle clean foil at your local Recycling Centre.


Asbestos

Asbestos is a toxic material that was once used to make insulation and fireproofing material in construction, it is classed as hazardous waste. 

We can no longer accept unwrapped asbestos, residents will need to bring any household asbestos to our facilities wrapped up in heavy duty plastic wrapping — you can use household rubble sacks that can be bought from super markets.

Asbestos can be taken to all our Recycling Centres

Ash

Small amounts of ash or cinders from an open fire can help to keep slugs and snails off your vegetable patch.

You can also put small amounts into your general waste (non recyclable) bin at home, once cooled.
