You've bin tagged

If we notice that your grey bin has items in it that shouldn't be there we will put a red tag on the bin handle. If you get a red tag we will NOT empty it. You should remove the items and either put them in your black bin or take them to a recycling centre. You should then put your grey bin out on its next collection day.
