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.

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:

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.
