What about black plastic?

You don't have to separate colours of plastic as Bryson can take all colours. Black plastic trays cannot be recycled at the moment, but they are turned into fuel rather than going to landfill

Need a new box?

To get a new or replacement kerbside boxes please log onto Council Direct (Request for Service) or contact Waste Helpdesk on T: 0300 124 5000 (Option 0).
