Bring bank sites
We have more than 40 recycling sites in North West Leicestershire - making it really easy for almost everyone to do their bit.
You can recycle glass, paper and textiles at most of our banks.
You can also find food and drink cartons (soup, milk, juice etc) banks, clothing, books and music banks, and even some banks to recycle your old shoes.
Please make sure you don't leave waste next to the bins even if they are full. This is classed as fly tipping and you may receive a fine.
