Using your Bins
To assist waste and recycling operators in servicing your bin on collection day:
- Return bins to your property as soon as possible.
- Store bins in a shaded area.
- Clean bins regularly.
- Wrap all moist and perishable foods in newspaper before placing in your green bin.
- Freeze all smelly food and place in your green bin the night before collection.
- Put lawn clippings and small prunings on top of the material in your green bin to prevent jamming.
