Have you got the right bins and containers?

If you have just moved into the area, have moved house or moved into a new build property, you will need to make sure your new home has the right bins/containers for your rubbish and recycling.

If you require replacement bins and/or containers, as they are either missing or broken, you can order them by completing the online form below.

Complete our online form to request your replacement/additional recycling and rubbish containers


Existing houses

Your house should have the following bins and containers:


New build properties

Please note if you have moved in to a new build (a newly built property which has never had recycling/refuse containers previously), there is an non-refundable administration fee of £25 to arrange the delivery of the containers, this can be done by calling our Contact Centre on 01952 384384.

This is a one off payment, all replacement containers and additional recycling containers will be supplied free of charge.

Before ordering your new build property containers, please check that your developer or Housing association has not already made arrangements for the containers to be delivered to the property in advance of you moving in.


Flat/apartment

Your flat/apartment should have the following containers:

  • blue bag
  • purple bag.

You should also have access to a communal rubbish and recycling area where you can empty your containers into larger bins and also dispose of any other household rubbish – for more information about the communal facilities please speak to your landlord, housing association or site office.

Download this handy leaflet for more information about the flats/apartment recycling service

If you are unsure about how to use your onsite facilities please phone 01952 384384.

Monitoring collections

On occasion, we undertake random monitoring of waste collection services throughout the borough. Occasionally we may come across a property where there are two standard 180 litre or 240 litre red top bins. In these circumstances we would usually contact the occupier in writing, giving them notice that, in except in exceptional circumstances, we will remove the second bin.
