Recycling and Waste

Uttlesford District Council believes strongly in the recycling of household waste.  Three bins are provided to cover most types.  The brown bin is for food waste, and is collected every week. The green bin is for recyclables (plastics, paper, tin, glass etc), and is collected every second week.  The black bin is for non-recyclables and is collected every second week, alternating with the green bin.
