Bins, rubbish & recycling Order a new bin

Don't order an individual bin if you live in a property that shares a large communal container. If you need a new communal recycling container, contact your landlord or managing agent instead.

Types and charges

  • Blue, brown or green bins - see what each bin is used for
  • We will collect as many recycling bins (blue, brown and green) you can keep safely
  • Recycling bins come in two sizes: large (240 litres); standard (140 litres) and are free; and
  • Grey bins come in one standard size (140 litres) and unless you have a large family or medical condition, they are restricted to one per household.
