Your Bin
Tameside's green mixed recycling wheelie bin

In Tameside your Mixed Recycling bin is Green.

In certain parts of Tameside, there is a bin swap (black bin is for recycling and green bin is for general waste).  If you are unsure, please contact Tameside Council

Please put your recycling bin out by 7.00am on the day of collection at the front edge of your property or at your nominated collection point.

Please ensure collection teams have access by parking vehicles responsibly.
