  • Newspapers, magazines and catalogues
  • Food and drink cartons – including juice boxes
  • Travel tickets (for bus, tram, train)
  • Greetings cards
  • Flyers, leaflets and pamphlets

Brown Bin

  • Plastic bottles – including shampoo, bleach, mouthwash, drinks, washing up liquid and milk bottles
  • Foil and foil trays
  • Empty aerosols
  • Tins and cans
  • Glass bottles and jars

What can’t be recycled

Unfortunately, we’re restricted on what we can recycle by Manchester City Council’s recycling capabilities and some building restrictions too. Therefore, there’s a some items we’re unable to recycle, and we’d encourage you to dispose of those responsibly.

We currently can’t recycle food and plant waste.
