Grey non-recyclable waste bin

Find out what goes in your grey bin, how often it's collected and how to request a new or replacement bin.

How often is my grey bin collected?

Your grey bin is collected every 3 weeks.

What goes in my grey bin?

Your grey bin is for waste that can't be recycled. Examples of waste that can't be recycled are:

  • plastic films
  • polystyrene
  • food contaminated cardboard and foil
  • bagged dog waste
  • cat litter
  • disposable nappies

Waste not in your grey bin

We'll only collect waste in your grey bin.

For excess waste that doesn't fit in your grey bin, you can request a special uplift.

You can also take it to your nearest recycling point or centre.

We work with Viridor to repurpose your non-recyclable waste through energy recovery. However we cannot treat gypsum, plasterboard and asbestos so do not place these in your household bin. Please take gypsum and plasterboard to a household waste recycling centre. Asbestos requires specialist handling and disposal.
