Don’t have space for a wheelie bin?
If your property has space, we will provide one, free, dark grey 180 litre wheelie bin to safely store any rubbish that is left after you’ve recycled everything you can.
Following a Borough-wide assessment of each property’s suitability for storing a wheelie bin, we have identified approximately 1,000 properties that are unsuitable, e g. no front garden or space to accommodate a bin.
These households will automatically move onto our red sack collection scheme and will be provided with free red sacks (3 per week, which are equivalent to the amount one 180 litre wheelie bin holds) to contain and put their rubbish out for collection. From March 1st, we will be issuing these sacks with instructions on how to use them.
