I need an extra waste bin
Reduced delivery service
Container deliveries are operating a reduced service. Currently the delivery of black bins has been prioritised. There will be a considerable delay in the delivery of recycling bins and pink sacks.
If you do not have a recycling bin or pinks sacks, please use any plastic sack that can be identified as recycling such as carrier bags. Please do not use black sacks for recycling.
If you feel that you need another waste bin please read the following to see if you meet the criteria:
- The grey refuse bins supplied should be sufficient to contain the rubbish produced by a family of five over a two-week period. If you fall within this category please do not complete the form as your application will be refused. If you have more than two children in nappies included within the household of five, we can provide an additional bin on a temporary basis
- If there is a resident who uses stoma or incontinence products please state this on the form as you will meet the criteria for additional containers
- If you live in a block of flats and require another bin for your building, please call us on 01424 451077, as you may not need to complete the form. If you require just an additional green recycling bin, please call us.
- Seagull-proof sacks should be sufficient to contain the rubbish produced by a family of five for a week. If you fall within this category please do not complete the form as your application will be refused.
