You must only place garden or food waste in your brown bin. Find out in detail what you can put in your brown bin:
Please note: we also provide free kitchen caddies that you can put a caddy liner in and use to temporarily store food waste in your home until you can put it in your brown bin. Only use liners provided by the Council in your kitchen caddy.
Some packaging may say it is compostable, however it may not be compatible with our composting scheme. Please check what you can put in your kitchen caddy and 'if in doubt, leave it out'.
During January, we will take away your Christmas tree if you leave it beside your brown bin. Please make sure the tree is cut into lengths of 5 feet (1.5 metres) or less so that it will fit into the collection vehicle.
