From 1st January 2018 we will no longer provide free of charge wheeled bins for household refuse and recycling for new dwellings.
Developers building new houses will be asked to pay £69 for the procurement, storage, delivery and administration costs of the provision of the bins for their new dwellings.
If communal bins are required the cost will be £250.
You should talk to your housebuilder to ask if they have made payment for your bins before you contact the Council to request them.
For further information and the process on how to activate the delivery of your bins please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) in the downloads section.
For information about our decision to charge for bins for new dwellings please see the report agreed by Cabinet 12 June 2017. If you have further questions, please contact us using the General Enquiry Webform
For payment of bins please use the Wheeled bin request form for new dwellings
