Hard-to-recycle map

The champions within this group have collated an extensive list of items that cannot be placed in the red or yellow bins, such as e-waste, textiles, metals, soft plastics and sharps. Explore the online map to find drop-off points. This will be an ever-evolving project with more locations added. Let us know if we have missed anything!
