The council will provide residents with a larger 240 litre wheelie bin (or a second 140 litre wheeled bin where appropriate) if their current black wheelie bin is not large enough to store their rubbish/residual waste between each collection which will be fortnightly from Monday 10 July 2017.
You will need to demonstrate that you are recycling as much recyclable waste as possible if you are to be considered as requiring a larger or additional wheelie bin. The council will then assess whether you need a larger bin. This may include visiting you and auditing your wheelie bin to help ensure that you are recycling as much as possible. Where appropriate we may supply additional recycling capacity to decrease the amount of waste in the bin.
All requests for a larger bin will be subject to an assessment by the council. Information may be required to support your application which must be provided within 28 days of the request. Failure to supply the information will result in the application being rejected and closed.
If you are requesting a replacement for a broken bin, we will not deliver the new bin if we cannot collect the damaged bin. Please ensure the damaged bin is at the front of your property where it is visible for the crew to collect from the moment you place the order. Deliveries can take up to 10 working days, so please ensure your bin is visible for this duration. If your old bin is not visible at the front of your property, your new bin will not be delivered, and the order will be closed.
