Garden waste should not go into your refuse bin. If you do not have a food and garden waste collection, we also provide a weekly garden waste service for those living in flats or on estates.
Items that should be included in your refuse bin are:
Sweet wrappers and crisp packets
If you do not have a food and garden waste collection then food scraps can go into your refuse bin. If you have a balcony or outdoor space at home you may wish to consider composting them into soil improver with a wormery.
All broken glass that is placed inside your refuse bin must be wrapped in cardboard or another ridged material so that it cannot pierce the bag and cause anyone harm.
Your household rubbish should be put in your refuse bin or black bag. If you are producing more rubbish than can be stored in your bin, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . We can arrange for more help with recycling or, in some cases such as large families with young children, arrange for a bigger bin.
