Foil Recycling

Yes Please!

The following list shows the types of aluminium foil that can be put loose into your recycling bin:

  • Aluminium foil tops e.g. milk bottles tops and yogurt tops
  • Aluminium foil food trays

Please remember to wash your foil.  If you are not sure if an item is made of just foil, try the following test:

  1. Squash the foil
  2. Does it bounce back?
  3. No – put it in the recycling bin
  4. Yes – it is not the foil we want and should be placed in the rubbish bin.

No Thanks!

We are unable to accept the following materials in the recycling bin:

  • Foil lined crisp packets
  • Foil lined food pouches, e.g. baby food and cat food
  • Other metals, e.g. cutlery, pots and pans and scrap metal generally
