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.

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.

Please try not to compact the material in your bin, this can result in your bin being half emptied on collection day.  If your bin is not fully emptied due to the material being compacted, or frozen together in winter months, it is your responsibility to loosen the material ready for your next scheduled collection. No additional collection will be provided for half emptied bins.
