Your refuse and recycling bins and containers

Wheelie Bins

Householders are responsible for the safe keeping of their wheelie bin.

If your wheelie bin is lost or stolen a charge of £34.50 will be made for a replacement. You are only entitled to 1 refuse wheeled bin. Any additional bins purchased will not be delivered.

The Council can advise people on how to keep their bin safe. People can take a number of easy measures:

  • Mark your bin clearly with your house number and, if possible, street name
  • Try to leave your bin out for emptying for the least time possible. Your bin must be out for emptying by 6.30am on collection day 
  • Try to take it back in as soon as possible after it’s been emptied. We realise that for people who work that may mean tea-time the same day
  • Don’t leave your bin off your property for more than a day
  • Keep it in a secure place if possible

Order new wheelie bins, white sacks/bags and boxes

Do you have a large family or require a larger bin due to clinical waste?
