What we do want

We only want waste you can't recycle in your grey bin. Here are some examples.

  • Plastic margarine containers.
  • Plastic food trays.
  • Plastic yoghurt pots.
  • Plastic packaging.
  • Pet waste (in a tied bag).
  • Bagged waste you can't recycle. 

How to save space in your grey bin

  • Try to flatten or squash your rubbish.
  • Squeeze air out of plastic bags.
  • Request recycling bins if you don't already have them.
  • If you have young children, consider using real nappies instead of disposable ones.

Don't forget..

  • Do not overfill your grey bin - the bin lid must be fully closed.
  • Do not overload your grey bin and make it too heavy for us to empty it.
