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
- drinks cartons etc
- cooking oil (cooled and sealed in a plastic container)
- shredded paper (co-mingled blue bins for flats only)
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.
CDs can’t be recycled (and should not be put into domestic recycling bins) - there are a small number of CD banks that take them - please check your local recycling points for availability. Charity shops also take them.
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.
