Why can’t I put nappies in my recycling bin?

How can I recycle if I live on an estate?

As a continuation from a previous posting about what can go into your recycling bin, we venture onward with our You Tube infomercials and today we are covering the topic of how to recycle if you live on an estate.  As a little bit of background to this,  the recycling team visited some estates recently with the recycling crews to see how the bins are performing.  Overall most were good and filled with the right materials, however many had some rogue elements in there like wood and even a broken child’s pushchair/buggy was found in one.  So please ensure that you follow all the information on the signs and stickers on the bins when recycling using the estates bins.
