  • All items must be empty, clean, dry and loose.
  • Please flatten your cans, cartons, plastics and cardboard to save space in your boxes.

Put textiles in a bag to keep them clean and dry.

YES – Clothes, shoes (in pairs), sheets, duvet covers and pillowcases.

If you have extra recycling you can collect a box from your local Household Recycling Centre (Carrickfergus or Ballymena). You are not required to order these in advance; however, we suggest you check our website for opening times/site access/booking arrangements. 

Please note the availability of new boxes may be limited at peak times. Alternatively, you can use overflow bags. Only put one type of material in each bag. Never put glass in overflow bags.

If you have difficulty presenting your boxes for collection please contact Waste at: T: 0300 124 5000 – Option 0.

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
