How many bins you can have

Each household is entitled to:

Bin prices

Each new or replacement household wheelie bin costs £25.

This covers admin and delivery costs.

If you order a new green bin, you’ll also need to pay for a yearly subscription to have it emptied. Visit our garden waste collection service page for more information.

Bin deliveries

We aim to deliver your new bin usually within 2 weeks

We can deliver to your drive, front garden, back garden, other outside area, or your next door neighbour – please leave instructions on your bin order form, and make sure any gates are unlocked etc.  We can’t enter garages or sheds.  If you don’t tell us otherwise, we’ll leave the bin outside your property.

The bin may not be brand new, we often clean and repair bins so they can be used again.  All bins delivered to you remain council property.  It’s your responsibility to look after the bin, we aren’t responsible for any loss or damage after it’s been delivered. 

Order a bin

You’ll need to tell us:

  • Your name, address and contact details
  • What colour and how many bin(s) you need
  • Why you need a new bin

You’ll need to pay straight away with your debit or credit card. 

Cancel your bin order

If you’ve ordered a new bin but need to cancel it, you do this within seven days of the purchase date. We can’t refund you if you cancel after this. You can cancel online:

We don’t accept cancellations by email.

If we’ve damaged your bin

If your bin was accidentally damaged by our crews or it fell into the wagon whilst we were emptying it, you don’t need to do anything.  We’ll let you know, and we’ll order and deliver a new bin to you usually within two weeks.

Bins for new build homes

If you’ve moved into a new build and you don’t have any bins, let the developer know - it’s up to them to order and pay for the bins.

Bins for larger households

If you have a large family or produce a lot of extra non-recyclable rubbish, you can apply for a second black bin. This extra bin has a red lid.
