What can be Recycled

Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council, in partnership with Bryson Recycling, provides a kerbside recycling service that makes 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
  • If you only have 1 or 2 boxes please rotate the materials you present each week. For example, the first week put out paper and cardboard in one box and plastics, cans, foil, cartons and aerosols in the other box. The next week put out glass in one box and cardboard in the other depending on your household requirements.
  • While temporary changes are in place it doesn't matter what colour box your put your recyclables in. 
  • 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. ​
  • Food waste will be collected as normal. 

Thank you for your co-operation at this time.
