More information on your bins and containers.

From 30 September this year, your recycling collections will be changing, please see below to find out what materials you can recycle in each bin.


Will I need new bins?

Everyone (except people who live in a flat or apartment and have shared bins) will receive a new food bin and kitchen caddy before the weekly food waste collections start from 30 September.

If you opt-in to the new garden waste collection service, you will receive a new brown wheeled bin for the collection of garden waste only.

Your existing green-lidded wheeled bin will become your recycling bin for glass, plastics, cans, foil, aerosols and drink/food cartons.

Your existing green box will be for the collection of paper and card/cardboard.

Your existing black rubbish bin will remain for non-recyclable rubbish.

Please select from the list opposite for more information.
