Changes to recycling guidance: drinks cartons

Please note that we are no longer able to accept drinks cartons, including Tetra Pak style cartons, in our blue recycling sacks. From now on these must be disposed of with your black bag waste.

We hope to be able to reintroduce the recycling of these waste items in future. However, in the meantime, we appreciate your help in reducing contamination of our blue bag recycling by following the updated recycling guide.

You can find all of our updated recycling guidance on our kerbside collections webpage.

We will also be delivering copies of the updated waste and recycling leaflet to households over the next week.

If you have any queries, don’t hesitate to contact us at or call 0300 1234 105.

Thank you for continuing to support recycling on the islands.
