Request a replacement bin
To request a replacement bin for an existing property please use our online form
Before requesting a replacement bin
- Please check with neighbours in case your bin it has just gone astray. If there is still no sign of the bin you can report it to us as “lost”.
- In order for us to replace damaged bins they must be made available on the boundary of your property from the day you submit the request.
- If you have an assisted collection, please leave the bin in the usual storage place.
- Replacement bins are often reconditioned bins - all are refurbished and clean. Replacement bins are usually delivered within a fortnight.
Please note: Unfortunately we are no longer able to provide inner paper boxes. Instead, we supply a larger kerbside paper box which allows residents to recycle more paper. Please be aware these do not come with a lid.
If your bin or box is damaged please use the online form to tell us where the damage has occurred - where possible original bins will be repaired for you to continue to use. If we cannot repair it you will be issued with a replacement.
New build property bins
If you are moving into or already have moved into a new build property, your bins needs should've already been assessed and ordered via the developers. If you have still yet to receive your bins, please fill in a New Build Property Bin Request form.
Bins are provided for refuse, mixed recycling and paper. Garden waste is a subscription service and there is a charge for these bins. Please read our garden waste information to take out a subscription.
Narrow access for bins
In some instances it may not be possible to provide you with a wheeled bin due to narrow access or access issues such as properties opening straight onto a main road. If this is the case we will provide refuse sacks clearly marked with the East Herts Logo and you will continue to have a weekly collection of waste. Your recycling collections will be made via kerbside boxes.
