Further details

Please do not put plastic carrier bags in your recycling wheeled bin. 

Some supermarkets provide plastic carrier bag recycling points in store. 

Try to reuse plastic carrier bags where possible or use a durable 'bag for life' instead.

Empty paper carrier bags can be placed in your recycling bin but please do not put other items inside them as this may confuse the sorting machinery.
