What happens to rubbish that I put in my household waste (refuse) wheeled bin?
Any waste that is placed out for collection as household waste/refuse is sent either to landfill or for incineration.
For your material to be recycled, it needs to be placed into the correct container and put out for that particular recycling collection.
If there are items unsuitable for recycling from the kerbside containers, the Household Recycling Centre can accept a range of items for recycling.
The majority of homes with kerbside access now receive the grey household waste (refuse) collection service using a 180 litre wheelie bin.
Your grey bin collections are weekly.
