Refuse bins - Blaby District Council


Refuse bins


We provide wheelie bins and bags for the collection of household waste.

What can I put in my refuse bin?

You can put anything in your refuse bin that can’t be recycled through your kerbside recycling collection, eg food waste.

Please do not put the following in your refuse bin:

  1. Garden waste – please sign up for a garden waste bin
  2. Paint – take unwanted paint and empty paint tins to Whetstone tip
  3. Builders rubble/waste, including soil and concrete
