Depends what you mean by recycling. With our council it is household rubbish that can be recycled - plastic bottles, newspapers, tins, clean plastic food containers, cardboard, etc. Bottles have to go in the bottle bank. Then there is the waste food bin for, er, waste food. Then there is garden refuse collection for which you pay extra which, I think operates for 10 months of the year. Then there is landfill rubbish.
I do know that Japanese Knotweed and Ragwort are not acceptable in any bin or at any Civic Amenity sites, aka The Tip. If you can get it to The Tip they take trees, branches, leaves, grass cuttings, etc. in my County. Look on your Council website, they all vary.
