Plastic yoghurt pots

These items can be put into your blue bin or brought along to one of our recycling centres

Please try to re-use these where possible (plant pots, for school projects etc.). 

Some yoghurt pots are made with very thin plastic strengthened with cardboard. The cardboard can be removed and recycled in your green recycling bin.

You can recycle yoghurt pots in your green recycling bin if they are made from plastic types 1 (PET/PETE), 2 (HDPE/PE-HD) and 4 (LDPE/PE-LD).  These numbers can be found in a triangle on the yoghurt pot. 

Please remember to rinse your yoghurt pots out.
