You can take the contents of unwanted mail to paper recycling points or place it into your blue recycling box. Envelopes can be placed in  green paper recycling points or your green recycling box. Do not put envelopes into paper recycling points (apart from the green lidded paper recycling points in east Lothian), As the glue used to stick them together interferes with the paper recycling process and can lead to a lower quality of recycled paper.
