Did you know that each year more than 8,000 tonnes of waste is generated just from Easter egg packaging and cards? So think green this Easter and put all your extra plastic, cardboard and foil from Easter eggs and cards in the blue recycling bins. Flatten the boxes to make sure you have enough space for your other recycling too.

Some households have a green bin for recycling waste – please make sure that only the green bin with the recycling logo on the front is used for your dry recycling.
