Ever wondered where all your rubbish should go? Not everything should be placed in refuse cubicles, and nothing should be placed outside, or nearby, refuse cubicles. Different types of waste are processed differently and these need to be disposed of, and collected, separately.

H.M. Government of Gibraltar hopes that the current recycling services will encourage more people to take up the challenge and help Gibraltar to meet its target of recycling 55% of all household waste by 2025. A full list of the existing recycling bin locations can be found here.

For further information on what can be placed in each recycling bin, please see below.

Within Gibraltar, glass, cans, paper, plastic, oil, batteries and small waste electrical and electronic items (WEEE) are picked up from strategically placed recycling bins. All these recyclate streams are then collected separately and sent to certified recycling plants in neighbouring countries. At each recycling plant, the recyclate delivered is reprocessed into new materials bound for manufacturing.
