Green bins, containers and boxes
Your green bin is for food and garden waste. Things you can put in it include:
- Meat and fish bones
- Raw and cooked food
- Tea bags and coffee grinds
- Egg shells
- Grass cuttings, hedge clippings, twigs and branches.
Food waste should be put in compostable bags first. We can supply these.
