Rubbish bins

We issue 140-litre rubbish bins as standard and all new and replacement bins are this size. If you have a large family or exceptional circumstances, we may be able to give you a larger rubbish bin. Please contact us using the details on this page.

Recycling bins or glass recycling boxes

There are three different sizes of recycling bin, so if you regularly have extra recycling and feel that your bin is not big enough, you can order a larger one or an extra one for free. You can also order an extra glass recycling box from us.

We collect rubbish in one vehicle and recycling and glass in separate sections of another vehicle.

Frequency of collections

  • We empty your green rubbish bin once a week
