Ryedale District Council

Household waste containers

Information on what types of equipment we supply for refuse and recycling collection and what goes in each container.

Ryedale District Council operates alternate weekly collections of non-recyclable (rubbish that goes to a landfill site) and recyclable materials.

Black or green wheelie bins

  • Please put non-recyclable waste in your black wheelie bin
  • A 180 litre black wheelie bin is provided as standard (all 240 litre green wheelie bins will be replaced by 180 litre black bins as part of rolling programme as the Council implements an enhanced kerbside recycling service to include plastic bottles and cardboard). Smaller 140 litre bins are available on request.
  • Properties unsuitable for wheelie bins or where residents require assistance (due to medical conditions, age etc) will be provided with 52 black liners per year for residual refuse. Properties on liners may be provided with a green wheelie bin for storage of the black liners containing non-recyclable waste.
  • We undertake random monitoring of waste collection services throughout the district. Occasionally we may come across a property where there are two standard 180 or 240 ltr. bins. In these circumstances, we will usually contact the occupier in writing, giving them notice that, except in exceptional circumstances, we will remove the second bin.

Extra waste

  • Only waste contained in the black wheelie bin will be collected. Any extra bags will be either returned to the property or placed in the wheelie bin after it has been emptied.
  • Properties with seven or more permanent occupants who have capacity problems with non-recyclable waste may (at the discretion of the Streetscene Manager and subject to investigation) be issued with an additional 140 litre bin for non-recyclable waste. To apply, please complete an Additional Bin Request Form.
  • Residents who experience bin capacity problems, due to a member of the household producing non-hazardous medical waste will be issued with an additional 140 litre bin for residual refuse at the discretion of the Streetscene Manager.

Who owns the equipment?

Containers remain the property of Ryedale District Council and must be left at the property when residents move. Residents moving into a previously occupied property should ensure that all containers have been left. Containers for new properties will normally be delivered within five working days. We will deliver information on waste minimisation and recycling to new properties.

What day is my bin collected?

We have an online calendar, where you can find your bin collection day, the dates of collection and details of what will be collected (refuse or recycling).

There is the option to search by your postcode on our interactive map or by zooming in on the map to find your property. Clicking on your property will show your waste collection day and then follow the link to your Waste Collection Calendar. The calendar shows the materials collected each week and any changes to your collection day, such as after Bank Holidays.

If you have queries or require any further information please email Streetscene or telephone 01653 600666.
