Wheelie bin delivery
Residents will have their wheelie bins delivered to their addresses by our contractor during June.
The new service only starts on Thursday 1 July. Please don't put your bins out on the kerb before then.
The bins will be delivered to your address. Each bin will be geo-tagged (registered) to your address to avoid bins being stolen. An address label will also be included on the side of the bin for easy identification. Households will continue to use their existing crates for recycling however they will only be for glass.
What do I do with my bins when I get them?
Check on the bins for your address sticker. This can be found on the side of each wheelie bin. Remember too the bins are geo-tagged to your address. It is really important that you have your correct bin(s). The tag will say RECYCLING on the bin with the YELLOW lid and RUBBISH for the bin with the RED lid.
Put your bins in a safe place.
What do I do if I am missing a bin(s)?
If your neighbours have bins and you don’t appear to, first check with your neighbours as they may have been mixed up by mistake. If you are still unable to find your bins, please contact Council on 07 885 0340.
What about green bags?
It’s a good idea to time your stock of green bags to coincide with the start of the wheelie bins. Council won’t refund green bags, but green bags can be dropped off at the transfer stations free of charge until 30 September.
