In general avoid putting anything that is hazardous or seems hazardous in the recycling bin. This includes, garbage, electronics, food waste, light bulbs, and any can that once stored hazardous chemicals.

Any kind of vegetal and animal waste: Kitchen waste such as coffee grounds, paper tea bags, pealings, oil and fat, lawn clippings, hedge trimmings, dead leaves, cardboard.
Better avoid bones, unless you have something to crunch them. They are rich in nitrogen, but don't break down.
The smaller the size of the material, the faster it will degrade. Chopping dead leaves with a lawn-mower will help, for instance.
If you have trees and bushes, a wood-chipper will allow you to compost whole branches.
Grass clippings are tricky, never put a whole bunch on top, or it will rot and form a layer that does not let air through, so your healthy aerobic bacteria will die and be replaced by anaerobic ones and you won't get compost, just a bubble of biomethane ready to explode. Always "sprinkle" your grass clippings, or incorporate them with the top layer of the compost, or add some dry material to it, such as straw or a spadeful of soil.
Avoid paper too, especially glossy paper. Modern paper contain many chemicals in both the paper and the ink, which are better out of your garden and food. Newspapers are recycled paper that stopped using ink with lead long ago, so these might be safer to compost.
You should use some small chicken-wire anyway to filter out undecomposed material and add it to your next bin of compost for another cycle.
it depends on where you live contact your local council they will have a full list of what they will collect
Like bottles, boxes, paper; pretty much anything that has a recycle logo on it.
Go to the Green Center, click on the arrows and then you will see how many you have. You must find 5 items such as cobwebs. Look hard! It took a long to for me on BuildABearville!
Tins glass cardboard plastic I think that's it really
It depends on what bin it goes in, you can recycle metal, paper, plastic, and glass, but they can't go into the same recycle bin
Glass Bottles and Cans
