Our phone lines will be unavailable from 2pm Wednesday 29 May due to a phone system upgrade.

You can contact us via live-chat on our websites, email or visit our customer service centre or council facilities. We anticipate the phone lines will be back online by start of business on Thursday 30 May. 

Aluminium foil

Aluminium foil can be recycled in your yellow bin if it is scrunched into a ball the size of a fist.

Please note that if the foil pieces are too small or light they may get lost in the recycling process. When recycling small pieces like those found on Easter eggs, simply collect the wrappers and bunch them into a tight ball (about the size of your fist) prior to placing in your yellow bin.
