We already collect one green bin (for your food and garden waste combined) on alternate weeks at no extra charge. But we also offer residents the chance to purchase up to six additional green bins. The current charge for each additional green bin is £17.50 up until Friday 1 June 2018. After this date each additional bin will be charged at £35 per year to collect – this is just under £1.40 per fortnight for each additional bin (1 August 2018 to 31 July 2019).
This charge of £17.50 covers you for collections up until Tuesday 31 July 2018.
If you'd like an additional green bin, apply here.
If you already have additional green bins
The current annual payment is due to expire on 1 August 2018. To ensure you don’t see a break in this service or collections stop, renew between Friday 1 June 2018 and Monday 16 July 2018 here.
How does it work?
- Create a login using email address and password
- Apply for the service online
- Select how many additional green bins you would like emptied each fortnight
- Select whether you would like any bins delivered. If you already have all of the additional bins you require this is not necessary. If you don't already have the bins and don't want to pay the delivery charge you can collect the bins yourself for free from the Wiggenhall Depot on a Thursday afternoon between 2pm - 4pm
- Choose to pay by credit/debit card
- Within 14 days you will receive identification stickers for each of your additional bins
- If you have requested bins to be delivered, they will also arrive within 14 days
- Apply the sticker to the back of the body of your additional bin(s) without covering any logos
- You are then ready to put all your green bins out to be emptied on your usual collection day/week (by 6am and on the boundary to your property)
- Bins must be put out on collection day with the handles facing out and the stickers visible to the collection crew
- Additional green bins will only be collected if they have the appropriate sticker on them
You can sign up at any time but the year runs from 1 August until 31 July every year.
When signing up to the new service there could be a period of up to 14 days where your additional bins aren't collected.
Please note bins which are too heavy or contain the wrong items will not be able to be emptied. Check the other common reasons why your bin may not be emptied.
