THESE are the plastics you can put in your household recycling bin in York.

Items with the 1 PET symbol - such as drinks bottles - and the 2 HDPE symbol - such as shampoo, milk and cleaning product bottles - can currently be collected during the kerbside recycling rounds.

York Press:

Other types of plastic without these symbols - such as yoghurt pots, margarine tubs, some plastic food trays and wrapping - cannot be recycled at the kerb currently.

In October the council agreed to carry out a review of the cost impact of changing how waste is collected in the city.
