N.B. The bring bank network is provided for the domestic sector only and is not to be used by the commercial sector.
Don't leave any bags or boxes at the bring banks as you WILL receive a fine.
Persistent littering may result in the bring banks being removed from your community.
Do's & Don'ts when using a Bring Bank
1. Do segregate glass by colour into the correct banks
2. Do ensure that all glass containers are clean
3. Do not deposit pyrex, crystal or flat glass in bring banks as these will contaminate the recycling process.
4. Do not deposit metal cans in the can bank as the bank is for aluminium cans only. All metal cans and metal lids should be recycled through your household system.
5. Household textiles must be clean
