Metal

Grey bin

Put rinsed food and drink tins and cans including biscuit tins and empty aerosol cans in your grey recycling bin.

Remember to rinse out tins and remove plastic lids (which also go in the grey bin).

Do not put other metal items such as keys, piping, tools or chicken wire, in your recycling bin. Take them to the scrap metal skip at a recycling centre.

Recycling centres

Put rinsed food and drink tins and cans including biscuit tins and empty aerosol cans in the plastic and cans bin at recycling centres (paper, cans and plastics bin at Brechin and Kirriemuir). Metal items go in the scrap metal skip.

Items must be at least 70% metal. If possible, remove wood, fabric and so on and deposit in the appropriate skip.
