A warm Sheffield welcome to all new and returning students

We would like to welcome all students to Sheffield for the new term and have prepared some advice on waste and recycling for you.

Here’s your quick guide to help you with your rubbish and recycling. It’s pretty simple:

Your cans, tins, glass bottles and plastic bottles go in your blue bin and your paper and cardboard goes in your blue box. Everything else goes in your black bin. If you do this your bin will be emptied every time you put it out as long as the lid is fully closed. 

To find out the collection day for your house, visit our collection day finder and put in your postcode.  

For more on recycling to help look after the planet you can also follow us at Recycle4Sheffield.

That’s it. Happy recycling!
