What does the bin look like?
It is an all grey wheelie bin with our logo.
Will I have to pay for the new bin?
There is no charge for the bin.
What size is the bin?
180 litres which is approximately 1080mm height x 485mm width x 725mm depth.
The standard blue lidded recycling bin holds 240 litres.
Can I have more than one bin?
No, each property can only have one general rubbish wheelie bin.
You can put out additional bags of rubbish next to your bin on the collection after Christmas Day and Easter Sunday.
My household only generates one bag of rubbish every two weeks, do I have to have a bin?
Yes, you do not need to put it out each fortnight if you do not want to, but we will only empty the wheeled bin we provide.
How to use your new bin
Please use bags for your rubbish and put these inside your grey wheelie bin to ensure your rubbish is contained. This helps stop the inside of the bin getting dirty and smelly. Some rubbish, such as nappies may need to be double bagged to help prevent smells. Please ensure the lid is closed.
Can we decorate our new bins with stickers and our house number?
Each bin will have a white rectangle printed on the front which you can use to write your house name or number on it. Any other stickers on the bin should not cover the printing on the bin as the crew need to see it is an authorised bin to empty it.
