Request a new bin, a replacement, or removal of a bin
Each residential property is entitled to one standard size green bin and one standard size blue bin. Exceptions apply to flats and houses of multiple occupancy (such a bed-sits) where shared communal waste containers may be provided.
You are responsible for looking after your bins and are encouraged to take steps to store them securely.
Replacement green and blue bins are currently provided free of charge if they have been lost or stolen. All structurally damaged bins will be repaired wherever possible and replaced only if beyond repair. We will not replace bins that are useable.
Please note, to receive a free brown bin you must sign up to and pay the £34.50 fee for the Garden Waste collection service.
Make sure your bins are only left out for the relevant collection day and brought back in after they have been emptied.
Further information about bins and waste containers is provided in our Service standards.
