Confidential or personal information

Please make sure you dispose of confidential or personal information, such as bills or bank statements, responsibly.

If you do have waste that contains personal information, it's recommended you shred it before throwing it away.

Please don't put shredded paper in your blue lid recycling bin as this will end up littering your street when your bin is emptied. Shredded paper should be bagged up and put in your grey domestic waste bin.

You can also put small amounts of shredded or sections of paper into your home compost bin if you use one in your garden.
