The gray bins are reserved for residual household waste. In particular, food scraps, toys, broken objects, litter, cigarette ends, dressings, disposable razors, wipes, etc.

- The bins are to be taken out from 5.30 p.m. on the day of collection and must be returned the next day at 8 a.m.
There are two types of gray bins for household waste:
- With gray cover: for individuals and buildings
- With green cover: for traders and companies

Some key information:
There are two types of containers:
The “gray” bins: reserved for ordinary household waste
The green bins are managed by the municipality: it is the city that sets the number of green containers made available to the co-ownership.
The colors of the bins and the sorting methodology may change from one municipality to another. For example, in Nantes, recyclable garbage is not sorted in the bins but in the bin bags. In addition, the color of the bins may vary, a national policy is being considered to simplify the life of nomads. The management of gray bins remains the responsibility of the co-ownership.
There are two possibilities:
The trustee contracts with a container rental company. This then makes garbage cans available, generally for a renewable period of one year, against the payment of an annual rent.
This option is interesting when the bins are stored outdoors, or undergo regular degradation. The rental contract provides for replacement or repair in the event of breakage. However, it turns out to be expensive in the long run. As you hire the junk removal services, you can have the best solutions there.
The syndicate of co-owners can choose to buy the gray bins it needs from special suppliers, referenced by the town hall. The use of an approved supplier is mandatory because the bins must meet precise specifications based on the technical specifications of the trucks in charge of collection. You will find the list of approved service providers and the list of supported containers on the website of your municipality, or at the town hall.
This solution is much more financially attractive as long as the bins do not suffer from recurring degradation. Thus, the cost of purchasing a container amounts to between 1 ½ and 2 years of rental, i.e. a rapid amortization for the condominium.
