Please use the Green Bin

Compostable kitchen waste like tea bags, fruit and veg peelings. This can constitute up to 20% of your green bin waste.

If possible use a home-compost bin for your garden for recycling of these wastes or if you are in a food waste collection area you can also use your new food waste collection bins.

If you do not have a home-compost bin, and do not live in a food waste collection area then please use your green bin to dispose of these wastes. Alternatively you could take your vegetable and food wastes to one of the Council’s food waste recycling banks which are available at the Recycling Centres in Troon, Ayr, Maybole and Girvan.

Please recycle at your local community recycling centre or contact us to arrange a special collection.

Please donate all used clothes/textiles to local charity shops. Alternatively deposit in one of our clothes/textiles bins; these are situated at various Recycling Centres and Points.
