Animal Bedding

Guidance

Fabric used for pet bedding or padded animal beds need to be put in your general waste. Pet bedding such as sawdust and chippings also need to be put in your general waste bin and not in the garden or kitchen waste. This is because they contain urine and faeces and do not meet the acceptance criteria for our composting facilities. Alternatively, you could put the bedding into your own home composting bin. Residents who wish to compost it at home should remove faeces (to prevent disease) and only add small quantities to ensure there’s a good carbon/nitrogen balance.
