Black bin or sacks

Non-recyclable waste

Your black wheelie bin or sacks is for rubbish that cannot be recycled and is collected fortnightly.

What you cannot put in

  • builder's rubbish such as rubble, tiles or wood
  • bulky heavy items
  • DIY items such as paint tins
  • electrical items
  • flammable liquids
  • gas bottles including fire extinguishers
  • needles
  • tyres or car batteries
  • mirrors/glass

What happens to your recycling

The rubbish from your black bin is taken to Kent Enviropower in Allington. Here the waste is burnt to create electricity.
