Box - Blue (glass, cans, aerosols, cartons, trays)

Blue box on white backgroundA small number of properties currently use a blue box for recycling certain items rather than the blue-lid bin. Blue boxes are only issued to properties that cannot accommodate a blue-lid bin due to their design or because our vehicle can't get to them.  If you have wheeled bins please use the blue-lid bin for recycling.

The blue box is collected each fortnight, along with the blue bag.

Your blue box should be placed at the edge of your property by 7.00am on the day of collection.
