All rigid (hard) household plastic containers can be placed in your yellow lid recycling bin, regardless of their recycling symbol number.
Rigid household plastics include ice-cream containers, shampoo bottles, butter and yoghurt containers, milk and juice bottles.
You don't have to wash them first, but make sure excess food is scraped or rinsed from them, and no liquids are left in them. Lids can be recycled, but unscrew them first before placing them in the bin separate to the jars/bottles.
Soft plastic packaging, such as plastic wrap, chip packets and biscuit trays cannot be placed in your recycling bin. Please see "Plastic shopping bags and packaging" for recycling options.
