The brown bin is for any cooked or uncooked food waste and garden waste. 

The bin remains the property of the council and should not be removed from your home. It is the resident's responsibility to keep the bin clean while it's in use.

Brown bin

Please do not dispose of food waste in normal carrier bags as most of these cannot be composted.


Cardboard can no longer be placed in the brown bin. Cardboard should be placed in your blue recycling sack, or flattened and placed beside it. Alternatively, you can take it to your local Recycling Centres

Remember, your bins and sacks must be at the boundary of your property by 7am on collection day.
