Litter bins

We are responsible for installing, maintaining and emptying 3000 litter and dog bins throughout the city.

What you can do

Always use litter bins when you're out and about and encourage children to use them. If you can't find a litter bin, take your rubbish home with you.

Don't put your household rubbish in street litter bins, please place your rubbish in your general waste bin for collection on the next scheduled day. You can take any waste to your nearest tip.

If you think there is a litter problem in an area, you can request an additional bin. Or if there is a missing or damaged litter bin request a replacement, requests are reviewed on a quarterly basis (January, April, July and October).

Need Emptying?

Litter bins are emptied frequently, for example bins outside of shops are emptied daily. We will empty other bins when we see they are full or receive a request to empty.
