New green bins

Your new green recycling bin is on its way

New recycling bins are set to roll out across Renfrewshire from next week as the bin collection service changes.

From Monday, green recycling bins will be delivered over a three-week period to residents across Renfrewshire.

The new green bin will be for plastics, cans and glass and the blue bin will now be for paper, card and cardboard only.

The new service is part of a drive to improve recycling in Renfrewshire and reduce the costs associated with disposing of general waste.

An information pack specific to your household is set to drop through your letterbox to ensure you are fully informed of what the new service means for you, and these should arrive in advance of your new bin.

The packs will provide clear guidance on what should go in what bin, a full calendar of when each bin should go out and details on any change in collection day.

You should start using your new bin as soon as it arrives.

The first collection of the new bins will take place from 3 December and you should consult your calendar for full details.
