Contaminated recycling bin: Yellow tags
If there are non-recyclable items in your green bin, we will put a yellow tag on the handles and we will not empty it. When the non-recyclable items have been removed, we will empty your bin on your next scheduled collection day.
Grey general waste bin
What you cannot reuse or recycle goes in the general waste collection. We do not collect any household waste that is not in your general waste bin. We do not offer more than one general waste bin. You can apply for a bigger bin if four or more people are living in your property.
