Repairs, Replacements and Cleaning

We will repair or replace bins free of charge if they are damaged by our staff or equipment.  Intentionally damaged or destroyed bin replacements are chargeable.  The size of bin provided may not be a like-for-like replacement.  

We supply 180 litre black bins instead of 240 litre bins.  Also, any grey bins will now be green coloured.

Containers will not be replaced if they are in a serviceable condition and it is the householder’s responsibility to clean them. Private companies are available to offer this service. The council does not offer a cleaning service or clean bins even if this was not the fault of the current resident.

If you haven’t moved yet please make sure you tell us your move date. We will try to deliver your bins on this date to avoid someone else taking them before you move in.

You will need to register for Council Tax before your bins can be delivered.
