Recycle right – quick tips:

By recycling correctly you’re not only helping keep our streets clean, but reducing Hamilton’s waste to landfill.

    • Recycle plastic 1 and 2, glass, tin, cans and paper and cardboard packaging
    • Wash and squash all containers
    • Paper and card separated out, folded and tied, and placed on the side
    • Don’t overfill your crate
