Bin requests

New applications for additional bins for non-recyclable general waste

The Council appreciates that there are some households who will produce additional waste which cannot be recycled. A second waste bin may be available to households with:

  • 5 or more permanent residents
  • 2 or more children under the age of 4 in disposable nappies living in the property
  • a permanent resident who produces non-recyclable, non-hazardous, healthcare waste

If your household meets one of the conditions above, you can apply online for a second 140L pink/purple waste bin.

Apply for a second green bin

Once your application has been received, and all documents are submitted in support of your application, an adviser may contact you to discuss this further. All personal information will be handled sensitively and in confidence. Information provided will only be used to ensure the appropriate capacity of non-recyclable waste is provided. Bins will only be issued once documents have been checked by a member of staff. Only approved second waste bins will be emptied.

Renew application, update your address or contact details

If you need to make changes to address or contact details for your existing additional bin, please also use the link below.
