Green bin

Green bin

Important information:

  • Home Composting - this is an excellent way to manage your garden waste, especially if you produce lots on a regular basis.
  • you can take any extra garden waste to either of our Household Recycling Centres, they are open 7 days a week, between 9am-5pm.
  • to prevent any garden waste sticking to the bottom of your bin you can line the base with a sheet of newspaper
  • you can also place up to 4 bags of additional green waste in suitable biodegradable sacks next to your green bin on your scheduled collection day, do not use black sacks as this is associated with refuse and if the crew can't see what waste has been presented, they will not be able to take the additional bags.
