What Goes In My Brown Bin & Food Caddy

More and more residents are recycling their food and garden waste in their brown bin, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill and minimising their impact on the environment. 

  • What Goes In My Brown Bin
  • The Following Items Are Not Permitted In Your Brown Bin
  • Using Your Food Caddy

Please Note:
 
  • We cannot empty bins that exceed the limiter on the bin lorry lifters. This limit is in place to ensure the Health and Safety of our staff.

  • To ensure that your bin is not too heavy, we advise you to present it when it is half full, especially when the organic waste is wet. If your bin has not been collected because it is too heavy, please remove some of the waste and present it on your next collection date.

  • We are unable to return to lift your bin if has not been collected due to being overweight.

  • If you are unsure if an item can be recycled in your brown bin, or if you have a query about your collection, please contact Waste Management Team on T. 028 9034 0056 or E. waste@antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk

  • You can request a new brown bin and food caddy through our Order a Bin page or by contacting the Waste Management Team on T. 028 9034 0056 or E. waste@antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk
