The Green, Blue, Black scheme

Recycling and waste wheeled bins, sacks and communal bins (green, blue and black)

Residents in houses normally have three wheelie bins with different coloured lids to indicate what type of waste can be put in each bin.

If you don't have enough space to have wheelie bins, then you'll need to put your rubbish in the correct waste sack.

Where to put different types of waste
Type of waste Wheeled bin Sacks (for properties without bins)
Food and garden waste Green top Corn starch or paper sack
Mixed dry recycling Blue top Clear sack
Non-recyclable waste (what's left) Black top Black sacks (provide your own)
