Black/green household waste bin

The following items can be put in your black/green non-recyclable waste bin:

  • plastic bags
  • food packaging where it has been in direct contact with food
  • crisp and sweet wrappers
  • polystyrene
  • polythene
  • tetrapak
  • cooking oil (cooled and sealed in a plastic container)

Paint tins – please do not put in any wheelie bin as when the vehicle crushes them paint tends to spill all over the vehicle and onto the road. Please either take the tins to your local waste and recycling centre or request a special uplift.


If you need help to dispose of medical waste please contact our Customer Services Centre on 0303 123 1020.

We recommend you put your house number on your wheelie bins.
