Come recycle with us!

What a load of rubbish! One of the Library 3-sectional recycling bins.Welcome to 2020!

One of our new year’s resolutions is to become still more sustainable, recycle more and send less to landfill.  For this, we need your help!

One of our biggest problems is that recycling gets mixed up and food waste or leftover drink gets mixed in with the dry recycling (packaging, empty cups and lids, etc).  Once something gets wet or soiled, it can no longer be recycled, so just one half-empty cup of coffee in the wrong bin can spoil an entire sack and consign it all to landfill.

Happily, remembering what goes where is easy:

  • Red and green bins are for recycling;
  • Black bins are for food waste;
  • Blue bins for liquids.

See it.  Separate it.  Sorted!
