Here you can find answers to the questions we get asked the most.


What can I recycle?

Paper, card, steel tins, aluminium cans, plastic bottles.


How does the clear recycling bag scheme work?

The Parish provides clear recycling bags for households to recycle commodities like paper, light card, plastic bottles, aluminium cans and steel tins.


Why can’t I recycle all my plastic containers?

We cannot process low value plastics such as fruit, vegetable and meat trays or yoghurt and margarine tubs due to the complex machinery and high costs involved


Why is POSH using bags and not boxes?

One of the barriers to recycling is the lack of space to store several boxes for recyclables; therefore, we introduced bags which are easy to store. If you have a large amount of recycling you just use more bags. The bags were also seen as way of keeping the pavements clear of obstacles once collected
