It is important to ensure that all containers are rinsed out before placing them into the Mixed Recycling bin as some of the materials are sorted by hand.

The number in the triangle symbol on the bottom of most plastic bottles and containers does not mean that it is recyclable. This number is the resin code, and only numbers 1, 2 and 5 can be recycled. All others must be placed into General Waste
