Buying A Bin

Wheeled bins can be bought from the Council. The normal household size bin is 240 litre and can be supplied in black, blue & brown.  Payment can be made at any Council Office or Depot. You can choose to collect your bin or to have it delivered (there is a £9 delivery charge). VAT is only payable on bins purchased by commercial properties. Householders are not charged VAT on bin purchases.

To help increase food waste recycling the Council has agreed that when a householder is purchasing all 3 bins (black, blue and brown) at the one time, the charge for the brown bin will be reduced to £10 - resulting in a total charge of £60 for all 3 bins- a saving of £15.
