Commercial waste and recycling containers

Commercial waste and recycling containers

Since January 2015, we have been required, by law, to collect recycled waste and general waste separately. 

Where necessary and possible, glass, metals, paper, cardboard and plastic need to be collected separately and must be kept separate. The aim is to increase recycling and improving the quality of the materials collected.
