Paper, paper products, and Cardboard,
Please put all clean Cardboard and Paper into the bins marked 'Paper Recycling'. These bins are emptied once a week, the cardboard and paper is shredded and used for bedding for the ducks and chickens. This is then mixed through the Ridan Composter. Waxed paper and paper with food on it cannot be recycled this way and where possible should be shredded by hand and put in the compost bins. Please help the recycling team by removing any staples or tape from your paper and cardboard as this is dangerous for the ducks and chickens.
Polystyrene cannot be recycled, and should unfortunately be placed in the general waste bins. Please check whether the supplier will take the packaging with them during delivery/installation of the product.
Please also check with the gardeners whether they can use the polystyrene in their work. Sometimes it can be broken up and used to help aerate the soil for specific seedlings.
