You can recycle food waste every week in your food waste caddy if you have one. If you do not have a food waste caddy, please put food waste in your grey bin. The brown bin is for garden waste.

The bin remains the property of the Council and should not be removed from your home. It is the residents' responsibility to keep it clean while it's in use.
Garden waste should be placed loose in the bin. If you want to use liners, they must be marked with the compostable 'seedling' logo.
Please note this service is only available to properties suitable for wheelie bins.
Cardboard cannot be accepted in the brown bin. It should be placed in Box 2, or flattened to pieces less than 75cm and placed alongside it.
Alternatively, you can take it to your local recycling centre.
Putting your bin out
Remember, your bin should be out at the collection point by 7 a.m. on the day of collection.
