If you cannot get all your mixed recycling in the bin or all your glass in the caddy please put them in a box or bag and leave it at the side of your blue bin on collection day. Your old blue box could be used or any firm cardboard box . We have some white weighted canvas bags if you would like one of those please contact us.
