If you sometimes have more domestic waste than will fit into your wheeled bin, please store some less offensive waste in a plastic sack until your bin has been emptied, then put it in your bin ready for the next collection. We will only take the contents of the wheeled bin with the lid shut and no extra bags.

Wheeled bins should not be used for:

  • Hot ashes
  • Heavy materials such as large amounts of soil, stones, car parts and rubble
  • Corrosive materials
  • Liquids such as paints or oils
