Blue Lidded Wheeled Bins

Each household is entitled to one 240-litre black wheeled bin with a blue lid for recyclables. You can have an additional bin for recycling for a one-off delivery charge of £25 and we will collect it alongside your normal recycling bin.

We collect recycling bins once every two weeks and these bins are for items which can be recycled.
