Mixed Recycling (Yellow)

The contents of your recycling bins go to a materials recovery centre for sorting. Plastics, paper, cardboard and metals are separated in their categories, then bailed and sold to be processed into new products. Contamination (putting the wrong things in your recycling bin) is the biggest problem and can mean your recycling will be sent to landfill. 

Remember - put your recycling in the bin loose, not in bags!
