Thanks to residents’ efforts it’s been another fantastic year for recycling in Surrey Heath, with the Borough once again ranked as the best performing in Surrey, and one of the best in the country.
Surrey Heath Borough Council is encouraging everyone to continue the good work during the festive season by recycling as much as they can.
Among the materials that can be recycled are: mixed paper, card, food tins and drinks cans, as well as plastic containers, glass jars and bottles.
Festive items that can be recycled include all wrapping paper and cardboard that rips.
Residents are also reminded that all mixed recycling should go into their green wheelie bin LOOSE, not in bags. This is because black bags & carrier bags often hide non-recyclable materials.
If your green recycling bins are full, the collection crews will also remove excess recycling – just make sure it’s contained within a box or a bag so it doesn’t blow away or make a mess!
Waste collection days will change over the Christmas and New Year period. They are revised as follows:
If you are unsure, put your bins out on your normal collection day and the crews will collect the correct one on your revised collection day.
Collections will return to normal on Monday 15 January.
