Mrs Marie Burns, Bessbrook won the title of Recycler of the Month for July. The competition is sponsored by ‘Around a Pound’ in partnership with Newry and Mourne Council to encourage residents to recycle in their blue recycling bin. Marie was awarded £50 voucher for any ‘Around a Pound’ store for her excellent recycling efforts. Her bin was filled with lots of clean glass, plastic packaging, cardboard and paper.

Marie has a blue and brown bin and takes great pride in using them both to their full recycling potential. Her blue bin contained all the correct recyclable material including glass, newspapers and aerosols. Marie said that when her blue and brown bins are full she visits Newry Household Recycling Centre to recycle as much of her waste as possible. 

The Recycling Officer checked 20 bins at random in Bessbrook and found that the majority of bins set out contained the right materials, however, householders are reminded that materials such as tissue, polystyrene, plastic wrap (crisp bags, plastic wrap on food packaging) and plastic bags cannot be recycled in the blue bin and should be placed into the black bin.

The following materials can go into your blue recycling bin:

Paper and cardboard (including newspapers and directories)

Plastic bottles

Plastic packaging (e.g. yogurt pots and margarine tubs)

Glass bottles and jars 

Aerosols 

Tins and cans (e.g. drinks cans and sweet/biscuit tins)

Tetra Pak (waxed cartons)

Tin foil (must not contain any food residue)
