It’s easy to recycle your plastics

Did you know you can recycle all your plastic pots, tubs and trays? That includes yoghurt pots, moisturiser tubs and meat trays.

Over half of all plastic pots, tubs and trays that could have been recycled are thrown away in Surrey every year. If all of these were recycled it could save nearly £300,000 a year in disposal costs.

There are a few plastics that can’t be recycled, like shrink wrap or polystyrene, and services vary depending on where you live. Check at or download the Recycle for Surrey app.
