Do not put food waste or garbage in the Greenwaste bin.

No, what I can't put out for Greenwaste collection

DO NOT place the following into the Green-Lid Wheelie Bin:

  • Plastic bags and plants pots
  • Rocks/bricks
  • Rubble/dirt
  • Large logs or stumps as these can wreck the process and damage machinery
  • Garbage and food waste as these can attract vermin and flies.

Green waste materials such as grass clippings, branches, pruning and leaves, are placed loosely in the Green Waste wheelie bin for collection.

The materials are collected and are then chipped at the materials recovery facility.

Then it is composted for 6-8 weeks. This kills any weed seeds and pathogens.

Then it is ready for use in horticulture as a mulch to retain moisture and suppress weeds
