The Waste Bin

The 140 litre waste (red lid) bin is collected weekly and should only be used for materials that CANNOT be recycled or composted. Any materials placed in this bin will be sent to landfill.

Waste items include
  • Plastic bags
  • Chip packets, lolly and chocolate wrappers
  • Nappies
  • Broken glass, mirrors, light globes or window glass
  • Broken crockery and cutlery
  • Rags, linen, clothing, cleaning cloths and sponges
  • Expanded polystyrene (including meat trays and cups)
  • Rope, string, wire netting and hoses

Think carefully before placing items into the waste (red lid) bin, as materials placed in this bin will never be recovered. If items can be recycled (yellow lid bin) or turned into compost (lime green lid bin), then use these alternative options to reduce landfill.
