General Waste

What I can put in my rubbish bin:

The 120 litre green wheelie bin with the red lid is where you put all of your general waste (any domestic waste that can not be recycled).

This will be picked up on a weekly basis.

  • Hot ashes, explosives or flammable material
  • Greenwaste or any other organic matter
  • Dirt
  • Concrete
  • Liquid or hazardous waste
  • Large or bulky objects
  • Sharp objects or material capable of puncturing the bin
