Your brown bin is for your organic and food waste. The great thing about your brown bin is it removes the need to put food and garden waste in the general waste bin.
A brown bin is provided to ensure waste food is collected separately so that it can be used to make high quality compost for use as a soil improver in agriculture and horticulture.
Also in Ireland, there are new Brown Bin Regulations, which now make it law that householders have to either use a brown bin, bring food waste to a local recycling centre or compost at home.
Food waste can no longer be placed in the general waste bin

A brown bin is a bin to put all your food waste into. The contents of the brown bin are taken by CDS Waste Management to a composting facility, where it is used to produce a high quality compost.
