We currently accept the four most common types of plastic -
Type 1 PET(E), Type 2 (HDPE) Type 5 (PP) and Type 6 (PS)
Type 1, or Polyethylene Terephthalate, is commonly used to make fizzy drink bottles, water bottles and salad trays
Type 2, or High Density Polyethylene, is mainly used to make milk bottles, bleach, cleaners and most shampoo bottles.
Type 5, or Polypropylene, is commonly used to make margarine tubs and microwaveable meal trays.
Type 6, or Polystyrene, is mainly used to make yoghurt pots, foam hamburger boxes, plastic egg cartons, plastic cutlery and protective packaging for electronic goods.
You can identify what type of plastic you have by looking for an embossed triangular logo normally around the base:
* For type 1 look for both the number 1 or the letters PET(E).
* For type 2 look for both the number 2 or the letters HDPE.
* For type 5 look for both the number 5 or the letters PP
* For type 6 look for both the number 6 or the letters PS
The logo with both letters and numbers is shown in the picture at the top of this page, however the logo is sometimes displayed with only numbers or only letters.
We can not accept plastic with any other combination of letters or numbers for recycling because, at the moment, it is difficult to do and expensive and we do not have a secure end market for recycling the other types of plastic.
Please do not recycle plastic without a logo, flower pots, cling film, carrier bags, bin liners, bubble wrap or plastic types 3, 4, 7 or above.
THE PLACE TO RECYCLE IT :
Clevedon - Car Park opposite The Barn, Great Western Road (NO GLASS RECYCLING HERE)
Portishead - Recycling Centre
Nailsea - Clevedon Road Car Park
Backwell - Recycling Centre
Green signs at the site indicate where you can place items for recycling while red signs show you where to put your non-recyclable waste. You can drop off your waste at the centre as long as your vehicle is less than six-feet high.
Please try and compost as much green garden waste as possible at home as it is a more environmentally-friendly way to dispose of your waste.
Portishead / Clevedon Recyling centre can also accept your hazardous waste for safe disposal, for example, part-filled gas bottles, weedkillers and chemicals as well as large items such as furniture and domestic appliances which will not fit into your bag or bin.
Alternatively, if you are unable to transport your larger waste items to one of our centres we can pick them up from your home as part of our our bulky waste service.
For further information download our recycling centres service standards or contact our Streets and Open Spaces service on (01934) 888 802.
