Recycle Right

Hertfordshire residents already recycle almost half the waste they produce. With your help we can recycle even more.

 

Keep it right

 


Why?

If you put the wrong item in your home recycling:

  • it might not get recycled

  • it could spoil the rest of your recycling

  • it could cause problems with our machinery

  • it can't be reused - consider donating your unwanted household items.

 


Not sure if it can be recycled?


Keep it clean and empty

 

Why?

Only the container can be recycled. Any food or liquid left in it:

  • can spoil paper and carboard by making it soggy.

  • can stick to other recycling, reducing its quality and value.

  • is unpleasant for our staff to sort through.

  • makes your bin and our lorries smell bad.

 

Food residue in your recycling make items stick together reducing its quality, so please keep it clean.
