The silver wheeled bin is for recyclable items. If you are unsure about what items can go in your silver bin, check Nottinghamshire County Council’s BIN SMART pages or print off the Bin Smart reminder (PDF File, 322kb) on this page and stick it on your fridge for a handy reference.
Glass cannot be placed in your silver bin but you can take it to one of our bottle bank sites. The PDF document on this page tells you where your nearest site is and what can be taken there.
Use our online calendar to check when your bin will be collected. Please take care not to contaminate your bin. If just one wheeled bin contains the wrong thing, the whole load collected on that round could be rejected and sent to landfill.
Around half of your waste should be eligible to go in the silver bin. If you have any cardboard packaging that’s too large for your silver bin, leave it securely at the side of your silver bin and we will pick it up with your normal collection.
If you need a replacement bin contact the council’s customer services team. The council can make a discretionary charge for missing or damaged bins.
Having moved from a free service to a chargeable service, Mansfield District Council have additional capacity on their collection vehicles and approached Newark and Sherwood late 2012 proposing to expand their existing service into the district.
We support them in this project which offers a new service to residents without any contribution from those who do not wish to use the service.
