Thanks for asking us about recycling

Date Published: 30 September 2021

Recently, as part of our drive to improve the quality of all recycling in North Kesteven, we left advisory tags on a large number of green-lidded bins to give advice and as a reminder on what can’t go in them.

Lots of you got in touch to ask us about recycling as a result. Thank you for your questions, and for doing all you can to recycle right.  

Here’s a quick reminder of the top things which can’t go in your green-lidded bin:

  • Plastic wrappers, such as film lids and packets
  • Plastic bags, such as carrier bags and bread bags
  • Crisp packets
  • Takeaway boxes
  • Dry, clean paper and card, which must now go in your purple-lidded bin. Dirty, shredded or contaminated paper and card should go in the black bin only.

If you’re ever unsure, you can take a look at our leaflet and A-Z of recycling or ask us.

Thank you
