Most properties in our district have enough space for the wheelie bin system but we know there are some properties such as flats and some smaller terraces where this could be a problem. We’ve already identified just under 200 properties out of 40,000 in our district where this is the case. Some of these properties will have different collection arrangements including shared or communal bins.
Alternative arrangements will only be made if there is genuinely no room to store additional bins. If you'd like us to take a look at the arrangements in your area, fill in this form and we’ll look at your property to see if we need to make alternative arrangements.
You can’t keep using the old boxes as the wagons that will be used to collect your recycling are changing. The wagons will be rear loading collection vehicles designed to empty wheeled bins, not boxes.
