The collection crews look in the blue bin, brown bin and blue bag before they are emptied to ensure that they contain the correct items for that container . If they spot something that should not be in the bin they will not empty it and a sticker will be left on the bin showing what item should not be being placed into the bin. This item should then be removed and the bin will be emptied on the next scheduled collection day.
The most common items causing problems in the blue bin are nappies, food waste, black bin bags, plastic toys and household waste. All of these items should be placed into the grey bin.
