Introduction to Recycling

View pages in this section

All of the households in Rossendale have an alternate week recycling collection service. 

The majority of households in Rossendale have a blue bin for glass bottles/jars, cans and plastic bottles, a grey bin for paper and card, and green bin for non-recyclable rubbish. Households on our garden waste collection scheme have a brown bin for their compostable garden waste.

Some households aren't able to have wheelie bins and have their refuse/recycling collected in sacks. These households will have a blue sack for glass bottles/jars, cans and plastic bottles, an aqua sack for paper and card and purple sack for non-recyclable rubbish.
