The organisation of bins is the responsibility of the developer or managing agent.
It is the responsibility of the developer or managing agent to tell us when residents are moving into the property. This must be done no later than two weeks before the moving date.
When planning permission for a new build property is requested, we'll tell the developer or managing agent how many bins will be provided and what space is needed to store these.
Please note that communal refuse and recycling bins cannot be bough from us, but can be leased instead.
To find out more about this and independent procurement of bins please read our refuse and recycling guidance.
Properties that do not have suitable bins may not be entitled to our refuse and recycling collection service.
We may take enforcement action under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and / or other relevant legislation.
We will not empty any bin or receptacle other than those we have preapproved. Please refer to the refuse and recycling guidance for clarification.
Bulk refuse and recycling bins can be hired from us. Prices are confirmed upon request.
We have a standard food waste housing unit and bin we provide to developers free of charge.
Food and Garden Waste (brown) 140ltr or 240ltr, recycling (green) 140ltr or 240ltr, and refuse (black) 140ltr.
If you wish to buy your own bins for your properties, you must provide, maintain and replace them as necessary. They must also fit our current specification regarding type, numbers and location.
Please see the refuse and recycling guidance for advice on what specifications you must adhere to.
When buying any 1,280, 1,100 or 660 litre bins you must ensure that the position of the comb bar adheres to the dimensions outlined in the drawing below (all measurements in millimetres). This is to ensure it can be emptied safely by the collection crew.
Please email email@example.com for any questions regarding the purchase of your own bins. These will need to be approved to ensure that the bins adhere to current specifications.
Once the bins you have bought are at the property, please arrange a site visit with the Waste Team so they can attend the site to schedule the bins for collection.
At least four weeks before residents move into your development, you must email our waste team to make arrangements for waste and recycling collections.
