Household Recycling

Every single item that you recycle or re-use makes a real difference – to our environment, to the costs of waste disposal and to the recycling targets which we have to meet.

The good news is that Mid Ulster has consistently had the highest recycling rate of all the councils in Northern Ireland, and that’s thanks to the efforts of our residents.

Your bins What your bin is for
Blue Bin

> Your blue bin is for recycling.
> All the material you place in your blue bin must be clean and dry.
> Items should be loose, not in plastic bags

Brown Bin

> Your brown bin is for food waste and garden waste

Black Bin

> Your black bin is for waste that cannot be recycled

Please note: Council policy allows for the collection of one black bin, one brown bin and up to two blue bins per household (each fortnightly collection cycle).
