Everyone is being encouraged to think about the Unusual Suspects, items that people aren’t always sure can be recycled or not.
To help avoid confusion Herefordshire Council have produced a new guide for recycling which Herefordshire residents can use to find out what can and can’t be recycled from your home into your green bin or recycling sack.
Making sure we only put the right things in our recycling is really important as putting the wrong items in can contaminate other clean recycling and can harm the environment through the extra treatment and transport required to remove it.
Thank you for recycling responsibly

Healthwatch is your champion for health and care services in Herefordshire. We collect your views and listen to your experiences, and feed that information back to service providers and commissioners to help improve services through what you’ve told us.
Across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, health and care organisations are committed to providing safe and effective services, but the way some services are run may need to change. This is partly because of a growing population and rising demands on services, and making the best of the resources available.
Due to the size of the challenge, health and social care bodies in Herefordshire and Worcestershire (and across England) are working together on a plan to help make sure health and care services are safe and sustainable for the future.
Healthwatch has been working with local groups to better understand the needs and requirements of patients in a sustainable health and care system. It is important you have your say and you can do this by completing our online survey: www.healthwatchherefordshire.co.uk/survey
Healthwatch will be feeding the information gathered from the survey and further engagement activity back to service providers and commissioners of services, so they are included in the shaping of plans for services going forward.
