The 'green lidded' recycling bin is collected fortnightly, the week after your red lidded general waste bin. Recyclables collected through this scheme are delivered to a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) located in Forest Town, Mansfield where it is sorted and transported across the country to be fully recycled.
It is important that as much waste is diverted from landfill as possible. Ashfield District Council is working with its partners Nottinghamshire County Council and the six other District/Borough Councils in the county to increase the number of materials that can be recycled in the green bin.
