There are different containers for rubbish, recycling and garden waste collections. You can order what you need from us.
If your home has outside space at the front, you will have:
- Rubbish collected from a black wheelie bin
- Mixed recycling collected from a blue wheelie bin
- Food waste collected from a small green food waste bin
- Garden waste collected from a green wheelie bin or reusable sacks. (If you have signed up and paid for this service)
Some homes do not have space for wheelie bins and instead have mixed recycling collected from green boxes or clear recycling sacks, rubbish collected in black bags and garden waste collected in biodegradable sacks.
If you are already subscribed to the garden waste collection service, you can use this form to ask for replacement containers, if yours have been lost or stolen. If you want to join the service or you need more containers, please use the garden waste sign up
Before you start
Some bins are not right for some properties. Check what type of collection is available from your home. You will only be able to order the bins or sacks that you qualify for.
You can ask for a replacement bin or box if it is damaged, lost or stolen.
If you have more rubbish than will fit in your bin, you can ask for a bigger bin or an extra bin. We will check that you recycle as much as you can, before agreeing to send you a new bin.
You will need to pay for a new or replacement rubbish bin, £50 for a standard sized bin and £75 for a large bin.
We keep records of the correct number of bins at each property and extra bins will not be emptied unless already agreed by us. You can also order an extra wheelie bin for recycling or an extra food waste bin, if needed. You do not need to pay for recycling or food waste bins.
Collections from flats
If you live in a flat above a shop or in an estate, you will use either the mixed clear sacks for recycling service and black bags for rubbish or communal bins.
You can order a shared bin online. This is usually something your managing agent or landlord would pay for.
You will need
- Credit or debit card, for rubbish bin orders
- Managing agent or landlord details, for shared bin orders.
What happens next
We aim to deliver the bin or sacks within 10 working days. It may take longer if we need to check the order is right for you. We will contact you if we need more information.
This form should take approximately five minutes to complete.
