Extra waste

If you have extra waste that won't fit in your bin, if eligible we can arrange for an extra bin or bags depending on which one you need.

You can apply for an additional rubbish bin if you live in a household with:

  • 5 or more permanent occupants, or
  • someone who has a medical condition that creates extra waste

There is a one-off payment of £35 for this service.

Your application is assessed by a Waste Awareness Officer. They will contact you to discuss how you can recycle more and waste less and arrange an extra bin if it's still needed.

If you use our bag and box alternative service, you will be offered additional sacks for your extra rubbish instead of a bigger bin, your bin or sacks will be delivered within 30 calendar days.

Apply for an extra bin

A household with one or more children under 3 years old who wears disposable nappies are entitled to a year's supply of blue authorised rubbish sacks, to help deal with the extra rubbish created.

There is a delivery and administrative charge of £15 for this service.

You will be asked for your youngest child's date of birth.

Your extra sacks will be delivered within 30 calendar days, you must apply each year - there is no automatic renewal for this service.
