Most local authorities provide a regular door-to-door, kerbside recycling service so it’s easy to recycle at home. But remember to check exactly what can and can’t be put in your recycling box, bag or bin as contamination can disrupt the recycling process.
If there’s something your recycling service currently doesn’t collect, you will find recycling banks at local supermarkets or civic amenity sites.
You can also get Cash for Cans.
Aluminium cans collected by your local authority are either sorted at the kerbside or in a materials recycling facility before being baled and delivered to the Novelis aluminium can recycling plant in Cheshire.
Remember it's not just cans that can be recycled – most of the contents of your bin can be too. With a bit of organisation you can get your household recycling effectively.
