WHAT types of plastic bottles can I recycle using my blue box?

YES PLEASE

 

Clear plastic bottles such as lemonade and blue tinted water bottles can be recycled using your blue box. Plastic milk bottles can also be recycled using your blue box.

   

NO THANKS

 

Coloured plastic bottles such as green tinted drinks bottles, detergent bottles, washing up liquid bottles and juice cartons cannot currently be recycled using your blue box. This is because these bottles cannot currently be recycled into new products.
