Foil is not accepted in your local council's kerbside recycling bin, box or bag. Clean foil can be recycled at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre. Foil can also be disposed of in your local council's kerbside residual bin.

Many metal items cannot be recycled as the recycling process is only designed to move particular items. Metal packaging that is recyclable must be empty and rinsed clean of food / liquid.

Find out what you can recycle in your council's area or find your nearest Household Waste Recycling Centre at Recycle for Merseyside and Halton
