The Colors of Bins Deciphered

Greenwich Council has announced the introduction of so many bins that it has become confusing to know which is for what. Here's a guide:

Green Top Bins: Perishable food waste
Blue Top Bins: Recycling (glass, paper, plastic)
Pink Top Bins: Smaller goods like hairdryers, irons, toasters and kettles.

And look out for the new household battery-bins alongside the blue-top bins in car parks and community locations (they're for chucking away all those batteries if you haven't figured it out yet).
