Black wheelie bin

Your black wheelie bin is for things you can't recycle.

We collect your black wheelie bin every two weeks. You can use our online tool to look up your collection day.

You can order a new wheelie bin if yours is broken and you need a replacement.

You can request a larger black wheelie bin if yours is too small.

If we haven't collected your bin, you can report a missed collection.

You can put in:

  • plastics that don't go in your red recycling box, including:
    • carrier bags
    • wrapping and packaging (for example, crisps packets, bread bags, nappy packaging)
  • polystyrene
  • lids of glass jars
  • nappies, incontinence pads and other sanitary waste (tightly wrapped and double-bagged)
  • empty stoma and colostomy bags (tightly wrapped and double-bagged)
