Flintshire County Council collects dry recycling on a weekly basis in four containers: a blue box for mixed glass; a blue bag for paper and cardboard; a white or grey sack for metal tins and cans; and a white or grey sack for plastic bottles.
Food waste is collected weekly from a 23-litre kerbside caddy, and the council provides residents with biobag liners, with more available on request.
The council collects green waste from brown wheeled bins fortnightly between March and December for an annual charge of £32.
Flintshire promotes reuse charity Refurbs Flintshire for bulky items and furniture waste. However, it also operates a household bulky item collection, which takes fridges and fridge freezers free of charge. A charge of £40 is required for the collection of up to five items of furniture, small and large WEEE, mattresses and more, with an additional £5 for every extra item.
Residual waste is collected fortnightly from black bins, with no side waste accepted.
There are six household recycling centres across the county at Buckfield, Greenfield, Mold, Sandycroft and Rockliffe.
