Green bin

Green-lidded bins are for organic garden waste only, like grass/hedge cuttings, leaves, twigs/small branches, flowers, prunings, weeds and small animal bedding made from straw or hay.

No bags, plastic, cardboard, food, or any other waste should go in the green-lidded bin, all cardboard should be recycled in the blue-lidded bin and all food waste should go into food waste caddies.

The council can only accept garden waste in the green-lidded bins provided, it cannot take extra waste in bags.

Use the council's online postcode checking tool to find out when your green-lidded bins are being collected.
