Request an additional black bin

If you do recycle but find that you still need more room then you can request an additional black bin using our online form. Please ensure that you also complete the waste diary.

For some helpful recycling guidance and to download a paper version of the waste diary please see the extra storage of non-recyclable waste leaflet (PDF 497Kb).

In some situations we understand that an additional black bin may be required. For example if you live in a large household or if you fill it with medical waste.

The charge for an additional bin is £10.

When your application has been processed we may contact you to arrange a convenient time to visit and carry out a waste audit at your home.

Our policy complies with current legislation. Section 46 (3) of the Environmental Protection Act gives local authorities the power to require householders to use a specific type of receptacle for their waste. It also gives them the power to make a charge for the supply of those receptacles.
