New and replacement bins

Wheelie bins

To reduce odours, maintain street cleanliness and to protect your rubbish from animals, we recommend residents put their rubbish in a wheelie bin. Rubbish must be bagged before being put in the bin.

Wheelie bins are available to buy in two sizes:

  • Smaller 140 litre bins are suitable for households with 1-4 people. They cost £20 including VAT and delivery.
  • Larger 240 litre bins are suitable for households with 5 or more people. They cost £30 including VAT and delivery.

Please contact us to make a payment and organise delivery. It can take up to four weeks for us to deliver your bin to you.
