Additional green bins charging - bin contents
Please use additional green bins for the following items only.
- Garden waste - all garden waste (grass, leaves, hedge clippings, bark, twigs, plants, windfall fruit etc)
- Animal bedding (from small animals like hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs)
- Prunings and leaves
- Christmas trees (real)
Please use your first green bin for food waste, the additional green bins are for the list of items above only.
Please note bins which are too heavy will not be able to be emptied. This is due to the equipment we use not being able to lift bins which are too heavy causing health and safety issues for our staff. The weight limit is approximately 30kg but will be assessed manually by the collection crew. 95% of the time a full green bin would not weigh more than this, however when garden waste gets wet, is overly compacted or contains heavier items such as lots of food, it can get too heavy.
