Which bin do I use?
We operate a three bin system in West Suffolk.
Mixed dry recyclables, including paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays, empty aerosols, tins and cans. For a comprehensive list, read our leaflet: Your guide to getting your recycling right in Suffolk
Garden waste bin
This is an optional subscription service, which collects compostable garden waste only. The service is currently suspended - please see details on home composting.
Any waste that can’t be recycled or composted at home should go in your black bin. It is taken to Great Blakenham where it is used as fuel for the Energy from Waste plant.
This is the most environmentally friendly way to treat your garden and kitchen waste. We offer cut price home composting bins through our partners at Get composting.

Batteries should be recycled at your local collection point; these are located at supermarkets, DIY stores and your local recycling centre. Because the recycling centres are currently closed, please store batteries at home until they are open again.
