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.

We collect your recycling in a Wheelie Box.

Please separate your items for recycling as described.

For further details on what you can recycle click here.

  • Please ensure textile are clean and dry. Tie them in a bag and leave them out for collection beside your Wheelie Box.
  • All items must be empty, clean, dry and loose.
  • Please flatten your cans, cartons, plastics and cardboard to save space in your Wheelie Box.
  • Larger cardboad boxes must be broken down to a size that fits into your Wheelie Box. This ensures it will fit into our vehicle compartment. 
  • If you have extra recycling you can use overflow bags. Only put one type of material in each bag. Never put glass in overflow bags.
