Recycling by room

Bathroom recycling tips

Many items in your bathroom can be recycled, from cleaning products in plastic bottles, to toiletry containers and beauty products.

  • Toilet roll tubes

Glass

  • Face cream jars
  • Perfume and aftershave bottles

Empty and rinse all bottles and containers. Leftover liquid can contaminate other items, which may mean they can’t be recycled.

Lounge recycling tips

Many items in your lounge can be recycled, from old newspapers to junk mail.

Things you can recycle:

Paper and card

  • Tissue boxes
  • Newspapers
  • Magazines
  • Unwanted mail and paper documents

You can't put shredded paper into the recycling, so only shred what is necessary and throw it away with the rest of your rubbish.

If paper has a plastic coating or shiny metallic surface it won't be recyclable. If in doubt, leave it out.
