Warrington is now a ‘very high risk’ local COVID alert level area (tier 3)
Find out more about what this means and the restrictions in place, visit our coronavirus webpages for more information.
With more than 85,000 households in Warrington we have a lot of bins to empty! To help us do this as efficiently and safely as possible, make sure:
You’re responsible for returning and storing your allocated wheelie bins.
Your blue bin is for items that we can recycle:
Don’t put hard plastic (like toys or coat hangers), bubble wrap, polystyrene, plastic bags, scrap metal, clothes, nappies, pet food pouches or garden waste in your blue bin.
Quickly rinse your containers to get rid of any leftover food or liquid, and put them straight in the bin and not in plastic bags.
Your green bin is for garden waste:
Don’t put turf, large branches, soil, stone or rubble, or your pet’s poo, bedding or straw in your green bin.
Put your garden waste straight into the bin and not into plastic bags.
We only collect your green bin if you have paid for a green bin subscription.
Your black bin is for general rubbish that we can’t recycle including leftover food, plastic bags and wrappers, polystyrene, nappies and dog/cat poo.
Don’t put garden waste in your black bin. Don’t put soil, stone or rubble, or building materials – this will make the bin too heavy for us to move, so we won’t be able to empty it.
You can put your rubbish in plastic bin bags before it goes in the bin.
You can take things you no longer need to one of our community recycling centres. Before you go, check their opening times, what items they accept and whether you may need a permit:
There are local recycling points, often on supermarket or pub car parks, where you can take some things to be recycled. Before you go, check where they are, when they’re open and what you can take.
