Waste - yes to recycle

Garden waste bin

This is an optional subscription service, which collects compostable garden waste only. This waste might include dead flowers, grass cuttings and sawdust. For more details, click here. You can subscribe to the collection service here.

Black bin

Any waste that can’t be recycled or composted at home should go in your black bin.

Home composting

This is the most environmentally friendly way to deal with your garden and kitchen waste. West Suffolk Council offers discounted composting bins through its partners at getcomposting. You’ll find further information on home composting here.
