The bin will hold the equivalent of approximately five standard refuse sacks. However, please be careful not to overload your bin. When we empty your wheeled bin we put it onto a bin lift which shakes the bin twice to loosen the waste into the refuse freighter. If the garden waste is too compacted in the bin we will need to excessively shake it on the lift which can damage the bin.
See ‘What can I put in my garden waste bin’ above. If in doubt, don’t put it in and phone our Customer Services helpline on 01843 577115 for advice.
