Request a Bigger Bin

Before applying for a larger bin, please ensure you are using all the recycling facilities available to your household. Please note that the standard size bin for general waste is now 180 litres (purple-lidded bin). Larger bins are 240-litres. Therefore, you should only apply for a larger bin if you have a purple-lidded 180-litre general waste bin.

Your entitlement to the extra capacity will be subject to the completion of a 5-week waste diary and will be reviewed on an annual basis. 

You should only apply for a larger bin if you have a purple-lidded 180-litre refuse bin. If you meet the criteria, you will be issued a 240 litre bin. If you already have a 240-litre black bin, then we can provide you with waste management advice. 

Please download the 5-week waste diary and complete our request a bigger bin online form.
