What Goes in the General Waste Bin

At Greyhound Recycling we are passionate about recycling. By all working together we can divert as much waste from landfill as possible. By using all three bins, you can save the environment and reduce your waste charges.

Your general waste or black bin is for waste that you cannot put into your recycling (green bin) or organic (brown bin).
