    • If you have large card the collection crew can only collect this if it is no larger than the size of a wheelie bin, please ensure your large card is torn/folded down to the size of the wheelie bin and secure it next to your blue bag on your next recycling collection day, alternatively you can take your large card to either of the household recycling centres (HRCs) or arrange a bulk collection, if possible, please keep the cardboard dry to help with the recycling process. Please ensure any polystyrene is removed from the cardboard and placed in the red top bin.
