When putting items into your recycling bin, please ensure they are clean and preferably dry. Items can either be placed in loose or bagged in a clear recycling sack.
Extra recycling will be collected on your recycling collection day as long as it is securely bagged in a clear recycling sack and placed next to your green bin.
Recycling presented in black sacks or carrier bags will not be accepted.
Please ensure that any extra recycling is dry, Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) is unable to accept wet material.
