Leave It Loose
Why does leaving it loose matter?
Recyclable materials put inside other items such as plastic bags, boxes or tubs are difficult for our contractor UPM to recycle. Such materials are rejected and not recycled. To ensure that all the materials in your silver bin are recycled please put them in your bin loose.
Cheshire East and its residents have worked hard to reduce the levels of non recyclable materials (contamination) in recycling collections. We are already one of the top ten performing unitary authorities in the country and by working together we will continue to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.
Make sure your silver bin is emptied by leaving all your recycled materials loose.
If we can’t empty your bin because of what is in it, we will place a long orange sticker on the bin explaining why we have not emptied it. Don’t let your bin get left behind…
