Rubbish and recycling
Why has my bin got a red tag?
If you find your bin has had a red tag put on the handle it means there is something wrong and we have not been able to empty your bin. It could mean that the:
- green bin contains wrong items
- black bin has garden waste, DIY waste or is too heavy to move
Always follow the guidance in What can I put in each bin? to avoid your bin being red tagged.
We will not return to empty your bin before your next collection and we would expect the items that have been placed incorrectly in the bin to have been removed. If you feel that you cannot manage until your next scheduled collection, you are able to pay to get your bin emptied by calling Great Yarmouth Services Ltd.
