Recycling Helper

Our recycling helper is here to point you in the right direction. If you are unsure about what to put in which bin at home, how to recycle or dispose of more unusual items, or even better, how to reduce your waste in the first place you are in the right place.

When recycling, please follow the guidance about what we can and can't accept for recycling, not what is written on the packaging itself.

If visiting Raynesway HWRC, our Recycling Advisors will be happy to help.
