What goes in your rubbish bin

We collect household rubbish which cannot be recycled, every other week. The rubbish must be in green council bin bags or in the black council wheeled rubbish bin. Put the bin/bags at the edge of your property by 6am on your rubbish collection day. We will not collect general household rubbish if it is presented in your recycling bin.

There shouldn't be much left after you have recycled your food waste, all the items that can go in your blue lidded recycling bin and any textiles, small electrical items and batteries.
