What goes in your household bins

General waste bin

Your green-top bin is for non-recyclable household waste only. Please try to recycle as much as you can. More information and tips to recycle more can be found on our Recycling pages.

The most common items in the general waste bin are:

  • Cooked food waste
  • Nappies
  • Dog waste
  • Non-recyclable packaging

We do not currently recycle food waste, but peelings and egg shells can be composted. Find out more about composting.
