We're making changes to improve your recycling service. These changes will make it easier for you to recycle and save money for the city. You will soon receive a new 240 LITRE brown bin - for most households, this will be the SAME SIZE as your existing black bin.
The children of Norton Free C of E Primary School explain Sheffield's new recycling service
Your new brown bin will be used for glass bottles, jars, cans and plastic bottles and it will be collected every 4 weeks.
Your existing blue bin will be used for paper and card and will be collected every 4 weeks, the same as your brown bin.
Your black bin will still be emptied every two weeks and, for most households, your collection day will stay the same.
If you live in the NORTH of Sheffield, your brown bin will have already been delivered or will be arriving soon.
If you live in the SOUTH of Sheffield, you will receive your new brown bin in September or October, with a leaflet explaining your new collections.
