Request replacement bins or sacks
The price for one replacement recycling bin or rubbish bin is £67. Each additional replacement bin costs £21.50.
Please note - only one rubbish bin will be issued per property.
There is no charge for:
- 140 litre or 240 litre garden waste bins. Replacement garden waste bins should only be requested when a valid subscription is in place. To subscribe to the service, visit our garden waste collection service subscription page.
- brown food recycling bins or silver kitchen caddies
If you currently get a sacks collection, there is no charge for (grey) rubbish and (blue) recycling sacks.
These are automatically delivered twice per year in April and October.
Delivering your new bins
We will aim to deliver your bin within 10 working days. However, we currently have a high volume of replacement bin requests so there may be a slight delay with your delivery. We apologise for any inconvenience. While you are waiting for your bin, you should store your rubbish and recycling, or take it to Barrowell Green Recycling Centre.
Important note - If we deliver your replacement bin and see that you have a full set of bins, you will not receive a new bin. Only one 140-litre rubbish bin (black/grey lidded bin) is allowed per household.
Request a larger rubbish bin
If you produce a lot of waste, you might be able to get a larger bin at an additional cost. The price for one additional waste bin is £67.
You can apply for a larger rubbish bin if:
- there are 5 or more permanent residents in your house
- you have at least 2 children in nappies
- you produce large amounts of medical or incontinence waste
Once you have registered an interest in a larger rubbish bin, we will contact you to complete a questionnaire.
Delivering your larger rubbish bin
If you are eligible for a larger rubbish bin based on your response to our questionnaire, we will arrange the delivery of your larger bin.
Your smaller bin will be swapped for a larger bin within 4 weeks. We will remove the smaller bin after collection when empty and replace with a larger bin. The exchange may not happen at the same time, but the replacement bin will be delivered on the same day.
Stolen or damaged bins
It is your responsibility to prevent your bins from being stolen. Here are a few ways you can keep your bins safe:
- Label your bin
- Do not put your bin out the night before
- Bring your bin in as soon as possible after collection (your neighbour may be able to help)
Bins for newly built homes
Bins for newly built homes or properties must be paid for. We will only deliver bins to properties that have previously had bins. If you need to request bins for a new build home or development, please contact us.
If you do not want a bin
If you do not want a bin, you can take your rubbish and recycling to Barrowell Green Recycling Centre. We only collect rubbish or recycling from bins supplied by us.
