Food tins belong with your RECYCLING.


Examples: Baked bean, rice pudding, and tinned fruit cans.

Please Remember: Lids and labels can be left on, but leftover liquid or food residue can make other recyclables dirty, so please empty and rinse your containers before recycling. It does not need to be spotless, a quick rinse will do.
