Order an additional grey non-recyclable bin

Find out how to order an additional grey non-recyclable bin.

Before you start

Each household is provided with one 240 litre grey bin. You can request an additional grey bin if you meet the following criteria:

  • 6 or more permanent residents 
  • 2 or more children in nappies
  • a resident has a medical condition that results in waste such as incontinence pads or large amounts of dressings
  • exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the waste department

Please note, you'll be required to fill in a waste diary as part of your application to give evidence your household needs a second bin.

If you're successful, we'll provide an additional grey bin for 2 years and you'll need to reapply after this time.

You'll also need to sign a declaration stating you'll continue to use the recycling service. If you don't use the recycling service your additional bin could be removed.
