What can be Recycled

Antrim & Newtownabbey Borough Council, in partnership with Bryson Recycling, provides a kerbside recycling service to make it easy for you to recycle from home.

COVID-19 TEMPORARY COLLECTION MEASURES 

To reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus we are introducing temporary collection measures from Monday 6th April 2020 to reduce the direct handling of materials by staff. 

  • Please sort your materials as described. 
  • If materials are not sorted in this way, containers will not be emptied.
  • Sorry but we can't collect batteries, textiles or hand tools at this time. 
  • Overflow bags will not be accepted. 
  • Ensure all items are clean and dry, and don’t contain any food or drink residue. 
  • Save space by flattening cans, cartons, plastics and cardboard.

Thank you for your co-operation at this time.
