11. Can I recycle takeaway food containers?

We are unable to accept any cardboard that has absorbed food residue because this could contaminate other clean recyclables. All other clean and dry cardboard can be recycled.

Plastic takeaway containers may be recycled as long as they are rinsed. We are unable to recycle polystyrene takeaway boxes.

Foil trays may be recycled as long as they are rinsed.

We are here to help so if you would like to discuss this please contact customer services on 01395571515 or email csc@eastdevon.gov.uk
