Green recycling bins are collected fortnightly.

Peterborough is on a mission to recycle as much waste as possible and there is an ever-growing list of items that can be recycled – see below for a list of what can and can’t be recycled.

All we ask is that when you recycle items, please remember to wash it, squash it and place it loose in your bin – no bin bags please.
