Blue bins - for recycling
Yes, if you have too much recycling for your blue bin this can be put out next to your bin on collection day.
Please make sure it won't blow away - please flatten and bundle up any cardboard and leave tucked behind the blue bin. Extra loose recycling can be put out in a bag (not black sack) or box, but please keep glass separate.
If you regularly have extra recycling ask us for an extra blue bin or hessian sack.
Find out what you can and can't put in your blue bin.
Black bins - for general waste
No, we need to reduce the amount of waste being thrown away, so we don't collect extra bags alongside the black bin. If you have too much general waste to fit into your black bin this can be taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centre.
If you are a large family and recycle as much as you can but can’t manage with the size of the black bin please get in touch. We can offer advice on how to reduce the amount of waste going into your black bin and can give you an extra blue recycling bin free of charge if you need one. You may be eligible for a larger black bin for a period time - find out how to request one here.
Green bins - for food and garden waste
No, we don't take extra garden waste at the side of the green bin.
If you have extra garden waste you could think about composting at home or take it to the Household Waste Recycling Centre.
