Chesterfield Borough Council is reminding residents what can and can't be recycled in their blue bins.
The authority is placing stickers on the blue bins to respond to queries from people about what they aren't able to place in there.
And a new video has been produced to clarify things for residents.
Councillor Chris Ludlow, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for health and wellbeing said: “We’d like to thank our residents for helping us increase the amount we are able to recycle.
“We are aware, though, that some people have queries about what they can’t place in their blue bin, which is why we have produced a sticker as a reminder.”
Some of the most common items that people put in their blue bins that the council aren’t currently able to be recycle are:
· Polystyrene –such as packaging, takeaway food trays
· Hard plastics – such as buckets and toys
· Food and drinks cartons – such as fruit juice Tetra Paks
· Textiles – including clothing and bedding
· Food waste – this should go in the green bin.
