Recycling - what goes where?

The food waste container:The contents of the food waste container go to a separate facility, where the waste is composted and turned into top soil. Therefore all food waste should go into the container. For practical reasons, you receive strong paper bags to fit a basket placed on the kitchen counter. The bags are made from paper that is also compostable. Once the bag is full, place it in the large outdoor food waste container. Do not use any bags other than those supplied by SOR.

The non-recyclable waste container is for anything that cannot be recycled. Nappies, sanitary towels, rubber, pottery, cooled ash, vacuum cleaner dust bags and old worn-out slippers.

Syringe tips and similar from private homes must be securely packed before being placed in with the non-recyclable waste, by placing in a plastic box with a lid (for example, an ice cream box), a plastic bottle or similar. The lid should be taped shut so there is no danger of it coming open.

Plastic packaging. We encourage everyone to separate plastic packaging from non-recyclable waste; you will notice quite a big difference in how quickly the container gets full if you do this. Did you know that plastic packaging takes up around 40% of the space in the container? Only plastic sacks with the SOR logo should be used for this.

Please place the following items in the sack: plastic cans, bottles and cups (not hard plastic), plastic bags, plastic sacks, plastic crisp bags, plastic shampoo and soap bottles.

Cardboard, paper and drink cartons. Put newspapers, magazines and flattened drink cartons in the container with the blue lid. If you do not have a paper container with a blue lid, please contact us. Drink cartons should be rinsed and flattened, so 6 flattened cartons will fit inside a seventh.
