Brown wheeled bin (kitchen/garden waste)

Your brown bin is for household collections of kitchen and garden waste. Brown bins are collected weekly on the same day as your blue bin (recyclable) and grey/green bin (non-recyclable) collections. 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. No side waste or excess bags/sacks will be collected with your brown bin.
