Which bin do I use?

A blue lidded wheeled bin, green wheeled bin and grey wheeled bin and a green kerbside caddyWe offer a range of collection services to households throughout the borough.

Each household is provided with one grey bin, one blue-lidded bin, one green-lidded bin, one kitchen caddy and one kerbside caddy. We will collect your grey and blue-lidded bins on an alternate weekly basis, your kerbside caddy on a weekly basis and your green-lidded bin fortnightly between March and November.
