Request a new bin or report a problem with your bins
Complete the form below to:
- Request a new bin: If your wheelie bin has
been stolen or damaged, you can request a replacement from us. Your
first replacement general waste bin is free, but you'll be
charged £32.80 + VAT for any further replacements. This is an
administration fee and covers the cost of delivering the bin
and only applies to general waste bins. To help you
recycle more, all new recycling bins are delivered free of charge.
All bins remain the property of the council and we reserve the
right to remove, change or replace them.
- Report a problem with your bins:
Tell us if your waste or recycling bin has been
damaged, burnt or stolen.

Additional bins for general waste can only be provided for
larger families, evidence of family members will be required
when ordering your bins.
Properties with gardens are also provided with a 5 litre
