What happens to your brown bin waste

You are here

Have you ever wondered how your tree branches, banana skin, shredded gas bill and grass cuttings get turned in to soil improver?  The Council's Recycling team has put together a step by step photo guide to help explain the process.

If you're not needing to use your brown bin for garden waste don't forget to pop all your spoilt fruit and vegetables, outer leaves of cabbages and sprouts, potato peelings, orange peel, salad items, tea bags and coffee grounds, cut flowers and shredded paper into it.
