Extra and larger bins

Larger bins can be requested by a household that can’t manage with the standard 140 litre burgundy bin, if the household:

  • is recycling all waste and
  • has four or more permanent occupants.

Additional burgundy bins can be requested by any household but will only be granted following a visit your property to conduct a stringent waste audit. This is to make sure you are doing everything you can to manage your waste. Before you apply for an additional burgundy bin, please remember:

  • you can have as many blue or grey recycling bins as you need, providing they are being used correctly
  • if you have 4 or more permanent occupants, you can apply for a larger burgundy bin

Please contact the cleansing team on 01254 585921 to request a larger or additional bin.
