New A-Z list highlights exactly what can be recycled by residents in Exeter

Published: 18 January 2023

New A-Z guide of materials that can be recycled in Exeter

A new A-Z of materials provides a comprehensive list of exactly what can be recycled and what should be placed in the black bin.

It is aimed at helping to end the confusion over whether certain items can and should be recycled. It is hoped that the list will encourage residents to recycle more of their day to day household items and avoid unnecessary waste being discarded in the black bins. 

The new webpage contains a comprehensive list of items and materials, and what should be done with them for residents living in Exeter.

The Recycling A-Z - now available to visit on the City Council's website.
If anyone notices anything they think should be added to the list, they can get in touch by emailing

Residents can also ask questions on our recycling Facebook page, Denis the Dustcart.
