Use the paper compartment for newspapers, magazines, brochures and commercials. Don't put cardboard boxes in the container, but you can use it for thin packaging from for instance toothpaste and cornflakes. The paper must be dry and clean. Place the paper loose in the container.
Use the metal/plastic compartment for tins, small metal items, plastic bottles, foil and plastic packaging. Rinse the tins and squeeze them to save on the space. The packaging must be empty and clean. Put it loose in the container.
Bring your container out no later than 6:00 on the day it is due to be emptied - or the night before.
