Non-recyclable waste

The grey bin

Landfill binYour grey bin is for non-recyclable items. There shouldn't be much left after you have recycled your food waste and all the items that go in your green bin.  Things that can go in your grey bin include:

  • cling film
  • polystyrene
  • crisp packets
  • sanitary products
  • tissues
  • nappies
  • cat litter
  • VHS tapes/cassettes 
  • bagged domestic animal faeces

Please do not put the following in your grey dustbin

These can all be taken to the county council waste recycling centres Oxfordshire County Council This link will take you to an external website... .


If you can't use up spare paint or give it away, the best way to dispose of it is to add sawdust, sand or soil to the tin and leave the lid off until the paint becomes solid and dry.  You can then put it in your grey bin or take to the County Council waste recycling centres.

Broken glass

Please wrap this in newspaper and put it in your grey bin.
