Correct Usage of Green Municipal Wheelie Bins

Municipal 240 litre green wheelie bins are designed to receive household general waste and small amounts of garden waste. Please do not use the green wheelie bin for sand, builders’ rubble, rocks or other heavy items.

Depositing heavy items as mentioned above causes breakages of bins, and will lead to the bin not being emptied, as the bin will be too heavy for the bin lifters on the back of the refuse compactor truck.
