Be a good sort

We can only recycle the below materials at MidCoast Waste Centres. Even if your packaging says recyclable, unless it fits one of the above categories, we can’t recycle it. Put it in your red general waste bin instead.

Diverting waste from landfill starts by knowing what can or can't go into your yellow recycling bin.

Only put these items in your recycling bin:

  • Paper and cardboard

  • Steel and aluminium

  • Rigid plastics

  • Glass bottles and jars

Make sure your recyclable items are: Open - Leave the lids on. Empty - Ensure containers are empty. Loose - Keep items unbagged and unboxed.
