Recycle at home

No, tissues cannot currently be recycled at home.

Can tissues be recycled?

  • Although tissues are made of paper they are made of very short fibres which are not high enough quality to be recycled and therefore should be placed in the waste bin.

Used tissue should be placed in your bag or bin for non-recyclable waste unless your local council tells you otherwise.
