Additional bin requirements

If you have too much household waste (refuse) to go into your normal household waste bin you can request an additional 180 litre refuse bin but only:

  • if your household is a large family (consists of 6 or more people) and,
  • when you pay the charge to supply an additional refuse bin of £62.10 at the time of making the request

Please note the additional refuse bin can take up to 28 working days to be delivered once form submitted and payment made.

If you require an additional refuse bin due to a medical reason please see our clinical waste collections page

If you are not eligible for an additional refuse bin (i.e. you do not have a household of six or more people) then you will need to dispose of your additional waste at your nearest household waste recycling centre. Check to see where your nearest recycling centre is.

Please note we will not collect black sacks left next to your bin. 


If you require any additional recycling bins or boxes for your household then you will need to pay the applicable charge for your selected item/s. Charges are as follows:
