Which items can go in my brown bin?
- Grass cuttings
- Hedge/tree cuttings
Which items cannot go in my brown bin?
- Soil - this cannot be composted and will make the bin too heavy to be emptied.
- Animal waste
- Food waste
Garden waste must not be bagged, it should be placed loosely into your brown bin. We also do not accept garden waste as side waste alongside your bin.
Top tip: To try prevent grass cuttings from getting stuck at the bottom of the bin you can place a small amount of newspaper in the bottom of your bin as a liner.
