Guildford residents will be able to recycle even more from next week as the council collects a wider range of plastics.


From Monday 23 April people across the whole of the borough will be able to place more types of mixed plastics out for collection each week.


In addition to the plastics already collected, residents will be able to recycle yoghurt pots, food trays, ice cream and margarine tubs, carrier bags, straws and bottle caps (plastic and metal) as well as Tetra-pack foil lined drinks cartons and clean and dry aluminium foil.


New recycling banks for small electrical goods are also being introduced.


Old kettles, toasters, computers, irons and hairdryers are just some of the small electrical items that residents can now recycle at seven Guildford Borough Council sites in the borough.


The old electrical goods will be recycled to make new products. For example, there is enough metal in an iron to make 13 food cans.


The seven bring bank recycling centres that will have the new banks are:


  • Woking Road Depot
  • Tesco, Egerton Road
  • Coronation Gardens, Ash
  • Spectrum Leisure Centre
  • Sainsbury's, Burpham
  • Millbrook car park, Guilford
  • Fairlands Community Centre
