The grey bin is for all the materials that you can't recycle. This is a fortnightly collection, on the alternate week to your brown bin and recycling sacks.

We are currently trialling a web chat feature. Please use the button below to talk directly with one of our Customer Service Team.

Your grey bin is for general household waste that you can't recycle or compost.

The bin remains the property of the council and should not be removed from your home. It is the resident's responsibility to clean the bin while it's in use.

Grey bin

Kitchen bin liners or black sacks can be placed in your grey bin, we will only collect waste that is inside your bin with the lid closed so please do not leave bags next to it.

DIY waste, such as plasterboard, rubble, timber and tiles will need to be taken to a Household Recycling Centre and should not be placed in your grey bin. 

Certain properties which are not suitable for grey bins have a Weekly Sack Collection. Please place sacks inside your seagull sack.
