What goes in my bin?

Blue Bin Recycling

You can use your blue bin to dispose of recyclable waste such as newspapers, paper, envelopes (except for padded), magazines, tins, cans, aerosol tins, cartons, cardboard and plastic packaging. Glass bottles and jars can also be placed in blue household recycling bins in the Omagh area only at present. Glass bottles and jars will also be accepted in blue household recycling bins in the Fermanagh area from 4 June 2018).  This will reduce the amount of material in your landfill bin and will also help the environment!  Let’s all do our part and Recycle Right!

Brown Food Waste Caddy

Brown waste caddies are used for the collection of food waste.  This means you can put items such as meat and fish (raw or cooked), bread, cereals, teabags and egg shells.  People who do this have noticed just how much food is wasted in their home and it has led to smarter shopping habits.

Black and Green Landfill Bin

The green/black bin is for all non-recyclable waste such as nappies, plastic bags, sweet and crisp wrappers.  We like to think of this bin as the last resort!  If you can recycle or add to composting let’s do it and for the remainder you can place this into your landfill bin.


For further information on which items to place in your bin, please download an information leaflet from the download section on the right.
