  • contents must be free-flowing (do not jam waste into the bin)
  • ensure bins are not obstructed by vehicles or other items
  • wrap moist/perishable foods in newspaper
  • freeze smelly food before placing it in your bin
  • return bins to your property as soon as possible after collection
  • clean your bins regularly to reduce odours and deter vermin.
