You should put your containers on the kerbside, just outside your boundary. All recyclable items should be placed loose in the boxes and not contained in plastic bags or other containers.
You can stack the boxes on top of each other to save space. If you think the containers will block the footpath please put the containers just at the boundary.
Remember to take your containers off the footpath as soon as you can after they have been emptied.
