Hints and tips to create more space in your black bin

Around 60% of household waste is recyclable, please use your new brown outdoor food bin and blue-lidded bin to recycle as much as possible. To recycle your garden waste, sign up to our chargeable garden waste service, use a home composter or take to your Local Recycling Centre.

If you think you will still create too much waste to fit into your black bin, you can:

Please don't leave your waste:

  • outside your house for scrap metal collectors as this is illegal

  • on the street or by a litter bin as this is classed as fly tipping
