DO’S AND DON’TS OF RECYCLING
Glass, newspapers, plastic water bottles and milk cartons, newspapers, cereal boxes and cardboard boxes are just some of the common items that are recycled every day.
Recycling does not have to be difficult. It is important to know what we should and should not put in the recycling bags.
Here are some simple tips:
• The golden rule when it comes to using your clear plastic bag is to ensure items are clean and dry. Black bags are for ‘wet’ waste, things that cannot be recycled.
• Please wrap broken glass in newspaper before placing in bags or wheelie bins to prevent injury to workers. Wherever possible, such items should rather be recycled or disposed of at public drop-offs or transfer stations.
• Please don’t put bags or wheelie bins out the day or night before removal. All refuse must be put out by 07:30 on waste collection day. No refuse bags may be left on pavements in baboon affected areas.
