Rubbish and recycling
Can I have an extra wheeled bin?
To qualify for an additional bin, there must be either:
- six or more permanent residents in the household, or
- five or more permanent residents including a nappy need
There is an administration charge unless the nappy need is clinical.
Any bins allocated should be returned when:
- the number of residents in the household reduces, or
- nappies are no longer required
If you require an extra black bin for clinical needs, please read our information on what to do with clinical or hazardous waste and complete the additional bin for clinical waste application form.
You can place extra recycling beside your green bin if it is in a cardboard box or paper bag, meaning you may not require an extra green bin. Always ensure that glass bottles and glass jars are placed in your green bin rather than in a box or bag beside the green bin. For health and safety reasons, we will only collect glass items that are within your green bin. If you constantly have lots of extra recycling please contact us on 01493 742200 for advice. Please do not place extra recycling in black sacks or carrier bags, as they will not be collected.
Any extra bins that we issue will be subject to a regular review. If we inspect an extra black bin and it contains any items that should be in the recycling bin, we reserve the right to remove your extra bin without further notice.
If it is reported that your property has extra wheeled bins and we do not hold your application on our database, we may collect any spare bins at our discretion.
