New and replacement bins

If your household waste bin or recycling equipment has been lost or damaged, you can order a replacement using our online form.

If you are signed up for garden waste collections and your bin has been lost or damaged, you will need to request a replacement or additional garden waste bin separately.

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

Important information for Lewes district residents

Use this online form to replace a lost or damaged recycling bin or food waste caddy, or to order an extra recycling bin if you need more than one. We will deliver your new bin within four weeks, and remove your old damaged bin at the same time (if applicable).

You can also use this form to purchase a wheelie bin for your domestic refuse. Standard refuse bins have a 140 litre capacity and are suitable for households with up to five people, they cost £20 including VAT and delivery.  If you need to dispose of an old refuse bin you can take it to your local Household Waste Recycling Site or request a bulky waste collection.



Currently the waiting time for a new or replacement 140 refuse or recycling bin is up to the middle of February. This is due to a delay from the bin manufacturers. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


If you are recycling everything you can, and there are more than five people in your household (or if you produce extra rubbish due to medical reasons) then you can request a larger sized 240 litre refuse bin. These cost £30 including VAT and delivery.

Important information for Eastbourne residents

You can also request a bigger black rubbish bin if:

  • you are recycling everything you can; and
  • there are more than five people in your household; or
  • you produce more rubbish due to medical reasons
