The new refuse collection system
Refuse and recycling will be collected weekly, according to the following scheme:

In the green recycling bin, you can put
- Paper & cardboard
- Food & drinks cans / tins
- Plastic bottles & containers
- Glass bottles & jars
- Food & drink cartons
- Foil & aerosols
But not garden waste (put that in the brown bin, if you have ordered one), general household waste, sanitary products, nappies, cat litter, cling film or polystyrene (put that in the grey bin).
In the food waste caddy, you can put any types of food, except liquids or oils. But do not put plastic bags, packaging, pet waste or litter or garden waste there.
Textiles and electrical waste
On Green collection days, you can put textiles and shoes out for collection, next to the wheelie bin, in a tied carrier bag. But do not include duvets and pillows.
On Grey collection days, you can put small electrical appliances out for collection, next to the wheelie bin, in a tied carrier bag. Batteries can also be collected, if you put them in a clear plastic bag on top of the bin. But not light bulbs, TVs or monitors, or anything bigger than a standard carrier bag.
