Plastic toys are made from a material known as ‘hard plastic’, which can’t be recycled in the same way as your plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays we collect from your home as part of a weekly recycling collection service.

Please take any broken plastic toys or games to your local recycling centre. If your plastic toys or games are in good working condition, please donate them to a charity shop or a local community group.

If your plastic toys and games are beyond repair, it may still be possible to recycle some of the parts if you dismantle them. This includes batteries and battery packs from remote controls which should be removed and recycled.
