Blue Bin (recycling)

For recyclable items including cardboard, paper, aerosols, cans, tins, glass and plastics.

Blue bin

Your blue recycling bin is for:

  • All cans, tins and aluminium foil
  • All plastic bottles
  • All paper and cardboard
  • All catalogues and phone books
  • Foil trays
  • All cartons
  • Plastic pots, tubs and trays
  • All glass bottles and jars

No carrier bags please. Please do not put recycling in to bags within the bin and only use clear bags for extra recycling beside the bin.

Please leave recycling loose in the bin and rinse cans, cartons and bottles where required.

All other materials should be disposed of through:

  • Your brown bin - for garden waste
  • Your green bin - for non-recyclable rubbish including carrier bags, nappies, cigarettes and food waste
  • Local household recycling centres - for items you can't put in your bins at home (e.g. textiles)

If your bin is too full

You can get free clear plastic sacks from our Fenland @ your service shops or Community Hubs and leave them out with your blue bin. You can also have a second blue bin if you have five or more permanent residents in your household.
