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 £32.20 for any further replacements. This is an
administration fee and covers the cost of delivering the bin. This
charge 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.
