Brown Bins

Information about your brown bin

Information is detailed below on what goes in your brown bin.

On your day of collection, please place your bin on the kerbside with the lid closed by 7am Monday to Saturday.

Please Note: All Christmas trees must be placed inside your Brown bin (with the lid closed) ready for the next scheduled collection date.  Alternatively these can be taken to your nearest Household Waste Recycling Centre.                                                                                       Details of your nearest Household Waste Recycling Centre can be found here:                                                                              

Unfortunately, we cannot take anything that is not in the bin. It is vital that all items are in the bin with the lid shut.
