Your bins

Your green rubbish bin

  • Your green bin is emptied once a fortnight
  • We’ll only empty the bin and won’t take extra rubbish left beside or on top of it
  • You can recycle or compost around 80 per cent of your waste by putting the right stuff in the right bin
  • The standard size of green bin is 180 litres. This is slightly smaller than your other bins because we need to reduce the amount of non-recyclable rubbish that we collect.
  • The lifting arms on our vehicles have a weight limit so if your bin is too heavy we are unable to empty it
