Do It Right with Recycle Right

Recycling – to bin or not to bin?

This is the question we know is asked by residents across the Liverpool City Region. Is this recyclable? … Which bin does this go in? … Can I throw this away? …What do I do?.In fact across the UK:

  • 66% of UK households are uncertain about how to correctly recycle or dispose of one or more items.
  • 49% of households are disposing of one or more items in their general waste bin that could be collected for recycling in their area.

We need more residents to ‘Do it Right’ and understand the materials that can and cannot be collected at the kerbside for recycling from their households across the Region. We want to:

  • Increase consistency in household recycling across Merseyside and Halton
  • Reduce confusion on what can and can’t be recycled for householders
  • Improve the quality of the recycling that’s being collected
  • Save money and resources


  • Recycle Right provides consistent and accurate information to all Liverpool City Region residents on what they can and can’t recycle.
  • Recycle Right lets residents know why they can’t recycle certain items
  • Recycle Right ensures that residents know where to go to recycle larger, or other items that cannot be collected in the kerbside collection.
