What goes in
the recycling bin?

We all have our part to play to recycle as much waste as possible and also make sure our recycling is properly sorted.

Become the recycling hero for your family by learning what items can be recycled in Ireland below! And don't forget – all items listed must be clean and dry before loosely placing in the bin.
Paper and cardboard
This includes Tetra Pak cartons (like your school milk carton!), egg boxes, newspapers and cardboard tubes.
Rigid plastics
This includes packaging such as plastic drink bottles, cleaning bottles, butter containers, yogurt cartons, salad tubs, fruit and vegetable trays, plastic milk cartons and soap or shampoo bottles.

Soft plastics such as cling film are not recyclable in Ireland – these should be placed in your general waste bin.
Tins and cans
All tins and cans can be placed in your recycling bin or bag.
