New and replacement wheeled bins cost £30. Please contact us if you want to order one.
The £30 charge is only for new or replacement grey refuse bins. If you need to replace your garden green or recycling bins these are free of charge.
If your wheeled bin has gone missing, please check with your neighbours as they may have moved your bin or taken it in for you. If your neighbours have not seen your bin and you think it has gone missing please contact us.
You will need to tell us:
- Your name, address and telephone number where you can be reached during office hours.
- When was the last time you saw your wheeled bin?
- Where was it when you last saw it?
- Whether it had your house number or name clearly marked on it; and
- Whether there any damage to the bin before it went missing for example, was the lid missing, were there any holes or cracks in the bin?
We will then investigate the matter with our contractors and report back to you within three working days. If your bin has been lost in the collection vehicle, we will replace it free of charge. If your bin has been stolen, you will need to pay for a replacement.
New developments - bins (per household)
If you’re a developer and you’re interested in purchasing bins for the site, please email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are moving to a new development where there are more than three properties your developer will pay for all the refuse and recycling bins. If you are moving to a new development where there are less than three properties, you will need to pay.
The payment for your bin includes the price of the bin, delivery and administration costs.
A new 180 litre wheeled bin costs £30.00.

If you’re moving to a new house, you should leave your bin behind. If you move to a house that does not have a bin you will need to pay for one.
If your bin has become damaged over time due to normal wear and tear you will need to pay for a replacement.
