Recycle for Leeds – Information about recycling plastic in Leeds

Last year in Leeds people recycled almost 4,500 tonnes of plastic – that’s the weight of over 30 blue whales!

Sometimes it can be confusing to know which plastics can be recycled. But in Leeds it’s as easy as 1, 2 and 4.

Many of the plastic products we use have a small numbered in a triangle printed underneath.

Plastic types 1, 2 and 4 include fizzy drink, water, milk, shampoo and bleach bottles, as well as bread and carrier bags. All of these can be recycled in your green bin or bag.
