Request a new bin

Contact Streetscene to enquire about new bins (please hold your call until you hear the option for Waste Services).

If you move into a property with no bin, you can request a new bin:

  • new green general waste bins are £40
  • new grey recycling bins are subsidised by the council and are free
  • new brown garden waste bins are £40 (only available if you are a current subscriber)

Request an additional bin

Requests for additional bins are currently on hold, due to temporary staff shortage. We are prioritising requests for new bins where a property has none. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Can I buy my own bin?

If you want to purchase your own bin independently of the council, then it must be:

  • a wheeled bin
  • compliant with the EN 840 standard
  • either 140 litre or 240 litre capacity
  • the correct colour for the type of waste that it will contain

If your bin does not meet this criteria, then it will not be emptied by the council.
