Your brown bin for kitchen and garden waste will be collected weekly on the same day as your blue bin (recyclable) and grey/green bin (non-recyclable) collections.
Please note: all kitchen and garden waste is to be contained in the brown bin. No side waste or excess bags/sacks will be collected.
Please wrap food waste in newspaper or 100% compostable bags. No other plastics bags will be excepted, even if it states recyclable or bio-degradable.
If you choose to use 100% compostable bags please check the packaging to ensure that they are marked EN13432. This is the European standard mark that confirms the bags are 100% compostable.
Your wheeled bins must be presented for collection at the boundary of your property or agreed collection point by 7am on the day of collection.
We are now offering a fabulous system that allows you to turn all kitchen waste into nutrient rich compost. This includes meat, fish, dairy products and cooked food. For full details and online ordering, visit: www.thurrock.getcomposting.com or telephone 0845 130 6090.
