Deciphering the Greenwich Bin Code!

From 21 January 2008, Greenwich Council's refuse and recycling collections will be changing. From then the waste team will be collecting as follows:

Green-Top bins: There will be a weekly collection date.
Plate scrapings, meat fish & bones, fruit and vegetable peelings, grass cuttings, leaves. You are to use paper to wrap food (not plastic bags).

Blue-Top Bins or clear bags (get them from the council): Mixed-Dry recycling. There will be a weekly collection date.
Cans, cardboard, glass, plastic & paper.

Black Sack (buy your own, the council doesn't provide these you know): A fortnightly Collection
Polystyrene, waxed cartons and any other non-recyclable waste.

Families with children in nappies will be able to register for a weekly collection (thank heavens for that) and all three types of waste will be collected on the same weekday (the council is going to personally contact each and every one of you to let you know when).
