Where to put your waste - Kitchen foil and aluminium trays

Record details

Kitchen foil and aluminium trays
Which bin should it go in?
Blue bin or box
Important information

Only clean foil should be recycled so wash it thoroughly and then crunch the foil together to form a ball before recycling.

There are a few packaging items such as crisp packets that can look like aluminium foil but are actually made from metallised plastic film. This type of material is not currently recycled and should be put in your black bin or purple sack.

Order a new bin

If you need an additonal recycling space you can order a new bin or box online.
