  • Metal lids of glass jars
  • Aluminium cans (e.g., Red Bull),  foil and foil packaging
  • Paint, oil and aerosol cans (leave labels on them so recyclers can see
  • whether they contain hazardous material).
  • Rusty cans can be recycled

Glass

The following CANNOT be recycled in this category:

Paper

  • White office paper

  • Newspaper
  • Cardboard (boxes and cereal boxes)

The following CANNOT be recycled in this category:

  • Laminated or waxy paper

Plastics

Plastics are made from oil, a non-renewable resource, and much of the plastic packaging we use every day is recyclable. Ice cream and milk containers, fabric softener bottles, plastic bags and even cling-wrap can all be recycled. The easiest way to determine whether a plastic product is recyclable is by looking for its recycling logo. There are seven plastic recycling logos and most plastic packaging is imprinted with one of them. The logos tell you what type of plastic a container is made of. Each type has to be recycled separately.
