Reduce your waste and recycle more

Your green wheeled bin (green lid) is for day-to-day rubbish, including disposable nappies and anything that cannot be recycled or composted. Please do not include hot ashes, rubble, heavy items, solvents, chemicals, clinical waste or hypodermic needles. The contents of your refuse bin are sent to landfill so please try to reduce the amount of waste you produce.


Households can use the kerbside collection to recycle paper, cardboard, plastic food packaging, plastic bottles, food and drinks cans and glass bottles and jars. Click here to download a detailed list of what can and cannot be placed in your green wheeled bin (blue lid).

Households have two food waste bins; a small silver kitchen caddy and a small outdoor green food waste bin, both with tightly fitting lids. You line the kitchen caddy with a compostable liner and fill with food scraps and when full, place in the green outdoor food bin. Please only put kitchen food waste in this bin.Food waste bins contaminated with other items won’t be emptied.

The green food waste bin will be collected weekly.

Garden Waste

The new garden waste collection service is paid for by an annual fee of £36. For this AVDC provide a large brown, 240-litre wheeled bin, which will be emptied once a fortnight. The material they collect is then taken away to be composted. The service runs from February to November, with no collections in December and January.

What you can put in your garden waste bin:

  • Grass and hedge cuttings
  • Garden plants and fallen fruit
  • Leaves
  • Small branches and twigs (up to wrist thickness – about 10cm)
  • Tree and shrub prunings
