What you can put in your Black Box and Blue Bin has changed. Implementation date for the change was 9 Mar 20. Collection day for Blue Bins & Black Boxes will also change.  Under the new system: glass and textiles would still go in the black box. Anything else recyclable could go in the Blue lidded bin. Examples of items that can go in the blue lidded bin are plastic bottles, pots, tubs, trays, cardboard boxes, food and drink cartons, paper, food and drink cans, aerosols and foil.
