Brown Bin

Your Brown BinSome households within the former Armagh City and District Council area have a brown bin for recycling certain types of waste. This is in addition to your grey bin which is used for non-recyclable items not suitable for recycling.

What can I put in my brown bin?

You can put the following items in your brown bin:

  • food waste (including cooked and uncooked food)
  • fruit and vegetables
  • grass cuttings and weeds
  • plants and flowers
  • cold ashes.
