Recycling List Ireland

To keep up with international standards in recycling, the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications have drawn up a list of the materials you can put in your household recycle bin. Please make sure items are clean, dry and placed loosely in the bin. If it’s not on the list, it’s not in the recycle bin.
