Gift & toy packaging

Gift & toy packaging


Gift and toy packaging generally consist of paper, cardboard and plastic.


Paper, cardboard and rigid plastic should be placed in the household recycling bin.

Plastic film is not currently accepted for recycling at kerbside so should be placed in the general waste bin.


Please remove plastic film from cardboard. The cardboard can be placed clean, dry and loose in the bin. The plastic film is not currently recyclable and must be disposed of in the general waste.

General Comment / Tip

Flatten cardboard to make more space in your bin.
