What Can Go In My Bin?

It's important to put the right items in your bins and ensure they are put out correctly to minimise collection issues

    On Bin Collection Day

    • Place bins out the night before your collection day
    • Bins should be returned to your property within 24 hours after collection
    • Place bins near the kerb with handles away from the road
    • Leave 50cm between bins and cars, street lights or other bins
    • Bins must not weigh over 70kg each
    • Do not over fill bins - lid must be able to be closed
    • Do not squash the items in the bin, this can result in the waste being jammed and difficulty emptying
    • Place waste inside the bin: extra bags or boxes will not be collected
    • Place the bins side by side, not behind other bins
    • Ensure bins are clear of parked cars

    Top Recycling Tips 

    • Put the right items in your recycling bin otherwise it may not be collected
    • Empty items before they go in the bin
    • Squash bulky containers down. Lids can be recycled too; just screw them on to their containers
    • Don't place items for recycling in a garbage or plastic bag - put them loose in the recycling bin
