How to dispose of ringbinders and lever arches

Please consider re-using them first.

If they can’t be re-used please remove the metals slots from cardboard/ paper ringbinders so they can be recycled through the blue bags and mixed recycling/ paper & cardboard bins. The metal parts can damage machinery at the paper recycling mill.

Plastic lever arches and ones where the metal slots haven’t been removed should be presented as general waste in the red bags or general waste container.
