What goes in your grey bin
Your grey bin is for your everyday household waste; any items which cannot be recycled, home composted or put in your green bin.
Any excess waste placed by the side or on top of your wheeled bin WILL NOT be collected.
The standard grey bin is 180 litres. If your grey bin is smaller than your 240 litres red bin and you are a family of six or more living at the same property, you can request a larger 240 litres grey bin.
