Renfrewshire Council Recycling Bins

Householders who don’t put their recycling in the correct bins will be exposed and their waste left uncollected.

From 17th February RC’s collection teams will be checking blue recycling bins for anything that is not paper, card or cardboard in a bid to cut processing costs and improve the environment. The article goes on to say that if bins are found to be heavily contaminated, a red tag will be placed on the bin outlining that it will not be emptied until the offending items are removed. Residents will then have 2 days to contact the Council to say items have been removed and organise collection of the bin within the next 5 days. 

In light of this announcement we would encourage all of our tenants to put all their items for disposal in the correct bins provided. For a list of what should and should not go into the blue bin please visit or contact the council via 

We would also encourage tenants to fit a padlock on their bins to ensure these are not misused by others. If you need advice on how to do this please contact us on 0141 889 7105 and ask to speak to your Housing Officer.
