Items we don't PickUp

Items that don't fit in the bag

A bag is the size of a standard shopping bag 

(40cm H x 18cm D x 36cm W)

with a capacity of ​26 Litres.


All items must reasonably fit in the bag allowing for some overflow. However, we will not collect items that obviously do not fit in a bag with the given dimensions.

Liquids that are not sealed

At this stage, we do not collect any containers of liquids from the problem waste section that are not correctly sealed or are leaking.

Clothes that are not wearable

We do not collect any clothing that are in an unwearable condition. Presently, all such clothing items should go in the red bin.

Toxic or other harmful waste

We do not collect any toxic or hazardous waste that should be collected by hazardous, chemical or toxic waste collection services. 

What is a bag?

You can use any shopping bag as well as our RecycleSmart bag if you have it already with you. All the bags you are placing in front of your door should follow the chart below as reference. If your items can't fit inside the bag, we won't be able to collect it.

Height: 40cm, Width: 40cm, Depth: 20cm

For your first PickUp, in case you didn't receive your RecycleSmart bag, we recommend you use bags of similar size to ensure that your items are recycled properly every time.

If its your first PickUp or you have multiple bags of recyclables, you can use any shopping bag you have at home - we will recycle them for you and leave our RecycleSmart bag for your next PickUp.
