REMEMBER TO... Put the bins out & recycle All non-recyclable waste should be placed in the purple bin.

Recyclable items including paper, glass, cardboard, plastic bottles, tins and cans should be put in the blue bin, appropriate bag or container. If you live in an apartment block then waste should be disposed of in the large black bins in the communal bin area.

Bins need to be put out at the right time and place, and stored away between collections to ensure they don't get lost or stolen. You also want to avoid attracting rats and other vermin. If your road has alley gates, ensure your landlord provides a key.
