We provide green rubbish bins for non-recyclable household waste. One bin per household is provided for the collection of domestic non-recyclable rubbish.
Everything in the green wheeled bin is taken to and ERF (Energy Recovery Facility). In order to avoid wasting precious resources and to help protect the environment, please use your green bin only for items that cannot be recycled:

Why not downsize your green bin? If you have a green bin that is the same size or bigger than your recycling bins, you can exchange it for a slimmer one here.
