Cat litter

Cat litter & scooper

Guidance

Cat litter cannot be recycled so put it in your general waste (non recyclable) bin at home. There are compostable varieties of cat litter but it cannot go into the food or garden waste collected by the council. This is because it could contain urine and faeces and therefore does not meet the acceptance criteria for our composting facilities. 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.
