When is my bin emptied?
Find out when your waste and recycling bins, boxes and sacks are emptied.
Christmas and New Year Waste Collections: Please note that there should be no disruption to grey/green collections over the public holidays and collection days will remain as is. We will endeavour to operate the brown bin service on the public holidays (26 December & 2 January) however there may be a slight delay.
For the majority of properties in East Renfrewshire:
- Brown bins for food and garden waste are emptied weekly.
- Grey bins for non-recyclable waste are emptied once every 3 weeks.
- Blue bins or white sacks for paper, cardboard and cardboard-lined cartons are collected once every 3 weeks.
- Green bins or green bags and blue boxes for plastics, glass and cans are also collected once every 3 weeks.
Please note some properties, who have limited bin storage or difficulty with access for bin vehicles, may have non-recyclable waste collected on a fortnightly or weekly basis.
