The banks are being supplied by The Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment (ACE UK), representing its members Tetra Pak, Elopak and SIG Combibloc.

Household Waste Recycling Centres are open every day between 9am and 4pm (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day), enabling residents to recycle a variety of items for free including household appliances, mattresses, gas bottles and wood. For a small charge, residents can also take bonded asbestos, tyres, soil and rubble and plasterboard to the centre.
