Maximise your space

  • Please check to make sure that only material that can be recycled is put in your grey bin.
  • Flat pack all boxes.
  • Bulk buy where appropriate on longer life items for example a larger box of cereal will produce less packaging than the equal volume spread over smaller boxes. It should be cheaper too.
  • Information on how to stop unwanted mail can be found on the Citizens Advice Scotland website and our Recycling A-Z web page.
