What can go in my bin?

All refuse deposited in household and commercial bins is collected by the Commissioners' refuse collection crews and is deposited at the Isle of Man Government-operated Energy from Waste facility, therefore only waste suitable for incineration should be deposited in the bins.

Please note: Do not put hot ashes in the bin as this may damage the bin. Stone, brick or builder's rubble should not be placed in the bin as this can cause damage to the machinery in the refuse vehicle. Bins containing refuse of this nature will not be emptied.

Damaged wheeled bins will be replaced free of charge if the damage is caused by fair wear and tear. In any other circumstances a charge will be made for the replacement container.
