Here are the basics of recycling:
An item must be CLEAN, DRY and placed LOOSELY in a recycling bin.
Hard plastics (fruit trays, meat pack trays), paper/cardboard and aluminium (cans and tins) are all widely recycled in a household recycling bin.
Bring glass to your local bottle bank.
Soft plastics (bread bags, veg bags) must be placed in the regular waste bin.
Bring other items to a local amenity centre including: batteries, clothes, scrap metal and paint.
If you’re unsure about recycling or disposing of waste then check Mywaste.ie. It has a complete A-Z list of how to dispose of items correctly.
If you would like a talk on Recycling in your workplace or local group I can facilitate a practical workshop. Please reach out to me via firstname.lastname@example.org.
