What should you not put in your recycling bin?

Recycling is incredibly important to us at RecycleZone. We have a pledge to recycle as much waste as possible and dispose of rubbish in the most eco-conscious manner possible. So far, we have been able to successfully recycle on average 90% of the waste we have collected from other people’s homes.

Saying that, we understand that knowing what you can and can’t recycle is quite hard to understand. When it comes to household recycling bins there are numerous rules and regulations which can make it even more difficult.

But what should you not put in your recycling bin? This is not an extensive list, but it is a good starting place if you are ever unsure what you can recycle.

Your local government in Lewisham advises that you should not be putting these items in your recycling bins:

  • Polystyrene
  • Scrap metal
  • Old clothes or scrap material
  • Any cardboard that has grease on it 
  • Tissues, wallpaper, and wet paper
  • Sweet and crisp wrappers
  • Laminated or waxed paper 
  • Plastic such as Tupperware, cling film, bubble wrap, and some lids

If you want some more guidance on what you can or can’t recycle, we have written an easy-to-read guide to help you figure out whether you can recycle your waste and how to do so.

Lewisham Garden Waste Collection

Keeping your garden neat and tidy can require a lot of trips to the tip, carrying heavy garden furniture, unruly bushes and piles of soil. Even then, it is not always possible to dispose of all these types of garden waste.

That is why it is often beneficial to hire a professional team who can help with this aspect of garden renovation. Instead of worrying about how you are going to get rid of all the waste, through organising a garden rubbish collection you can focus on creating the garden of your dreams. 

We are able to carry out this service at both commercial and personal properties, only offering the best prices possible. With years behind them, our team will be able to dispose of your garden waste in an efficient and quick manner.

Lewisham Bulky Furniture Disposal & Removal

Whether you are moving from one property to another, or getting rid of it completely, dealing with bulky furniture can be a nightmare. Lifting it yourself can often result in injuries and back pain, as well as damage to the furniture itself, so why take the risk?

Seeking the furniture services of a professional company can not only preserve the quality of your furniture but also save you from any possible injuries.

If you are moving house, our team will be able to lift and load the furniture before taking it to the location of your choice. You won’t even have to worry about it there either, as we will be happy to place the furniture in your new home.

When your furniture is worn and you are looking to upgrade, RecycleZone will be able to dispose of it in the most eco-conscious manner possible.
