Be a great recycler…
- Card and cardboard should be kept clean and dry – please close the lid on your bin
- Wet or dirty card and cardboard should be placed in your rubbish bin
- If in doubt, leave it out. Don’t let your enthusiasm to recycle contaminate a whole truck load of recycling – see What is ‘contamination’ and why is it important?
