Mixed recycling

Help us save money and the planet by recycling more of the right things. Recycling is a more cost effective way to dispose of waste – and it’s better for the environment too. Remember that all your recycling should be placed in your bin clean, dry and loose. In Surrey you can recycle:

  • Paper and cardboard – office paper, card, catalogues, brochures, magazines, newspapers, wrapping paper without glitter/foil/plastic, envelopes
  • Plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays – including detergent bottles, yoghurt pots, ready meal trays and ice cream tubs
  • Metal food tins and drinks cans
  • Glass bottles and jars

You can also refresh your knowledge of what can and can’t be recycled in Surrey with our waste sorting game.
