Your Black Bin

Your black bin should only be used as a last resort, for items which are non -recyclable in your household collection.

For more information on what items can be disposed of in your black bin take a look at the Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council Black Bin web page.

What happens to items deposited in the black bin?

Rubbish that’s put into the black bin is not recycled and is disposed of using waste to energy incinerators.  The incinerators power themselves by creating energy but these rubbish disposal systems do have an environmental impact.

Gasses are created during the incineration process which are passed through a fine particulate removal system and then released through the chimney stack.  So it is always best to only use your black bin when strictly necessary.
