Waste collection: Red (general) & Blue (glass)
May 20, 2024
Your rubbish bin / ipupara
This is your wheelie bin with the red lid, and it’s just for rubbish.
When green waste goes to landfill it creates methane, a greenhouse gas much more potent than carbon dioxide.
Instead of putting it in your red bin, consider composting or using our green waste collection.
Did you know? I get collected weekly.

Remember: Rinse bottles and jars to make sure they’re clean.

Tip: One person’s waste is another’s treasure. Keep an eye out on noticeboards and social media for opportunities to save useable items from going to landfill.
