Grey food waste bin collections

Your grey food waste bin will be collected every week on your normal collection day along with your black or green bin.


All plastic packaging, glass bottles, cardboard, cards and wrapping paper (not glittery or metallic) can go into your green recycling bin. All non-liquid food waste can go into your grey food bin.

Additional waste

If you have any recycling that cannot fit in your green bin, you can put it in clear bags next to your green bin on your collection day.

Alternatively, recycling can be taken to the Household Recycling Centre.

How to get rid of your waste if you are either self-isolating or confirmed to have coronavirus (COVID-19)

Any individuals asked to self-isolate, either as a precaution or because they are confirmed to have coronavirus, should follow this advice to get rid of their household waste to ensure the virus is not spread via personal waste.

  • Individuals should place all personal waste such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths, securely in a plastic bag or bin liner.
  • This plastic bag should then be placed in another plastic bag and securely tied.
  • These bags must be stored separately to other waste for at least 72 hours before being placed in the general rubbish collection.

After 72 hours outside the body the virus is no longer viable and the double bagged waste can be put in the general rubbish collection as normal. Only waste that is heavily contaminated, such as tissues that have been coughed in and disposable cleaning cloths need to be treated in this way. Regular household recycling and waste should be treated as normal.

Please note: individuals who are self-isolating should not visit Fengate Household Recycling Centre (HRC) to dispose of waste.
