We provide a standard 240 litre bin to each household for non recyclable waste.
However, if you are recycling correctly and still struggling to fit all your waste in our standard bin, we may be able to provide you with a larger 360 litre bin.
To request a larger bin please complete our bigger general waste bin request form.
A recycling officer will assess your request within two weeks of completing the form. This may involve a waste analysis.
You will not be issued a larger bin if you are not recycling.
If you are issued with a larger bin, you will be reviewed from time to time to see if you still require a larger bin.
