What can I put in my beige bin?

Disposal of face coverings and personal protective equipment (PPE)

Please put face masks and disposable gloves in the normal waste at home for disposal in your grey bin.

Do not put them in a beige or burgundy recycling bin as they cannot be recycled through conventional recycling facilities.

You can put the following items in your beige bin:

  • cardboard packaging
  • magazines and catalogues
  • cardboard food boxes
  • envelopes
  • leaflets and junk mail
  • cards without glitter
  • shredded paper
  • Food and drink cartons

Your bin will not be emptied if it contains other items.
