All houses in Cambridge should have:
- A blue bin (or a recycling box) for recycling mixed cans, paper, glass, plastic packaging, cartons and cardboard
- A green bin (or brown paper sacks) for compostable garden and food waste
- A black bin (or white plastic sacks) for general rubbish
Your blue and green bin are emptied one week, and your black bin is emptied the following week.
It can help to set up a separate bin for your blue bin recycling in your kitchen, next to the general rubbish bin. You can download a label to put on your kitchen recycling bin [PDF, ].
