Request an additional green bin

Unfortunately the standard 10 working day policy for bin deliveries has been extended to 15 working days due to delays caused by Covid-19 related issues. 

We apologise for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience and understanding with this matter.

You can buy an additional green bin if you regularly have more compostable material than will fit in a single green lidded bin.

This bin is used to recycle food and garden plant waste

We can only compost...

Cooked and uncooked food waste
Fruit and vegetable peelings
Meat, fish and bones
Dead flowers
Grass and hedge cuttings
Real Christmas trees (make sure you remove all decorations and the base)

We can't compost...

Plastic bags
Glass, metal, plastic or cardboard
Cat or dog litter and faeces
Soil, stones or rubble

There is an initial charge of £56 covering the delivery and collections until the next April. In the April after you get your extra bin you have to pay the annual charge. The 2020/21 annual charge is £29 per additional bin.

If you already have an additional green bin and need to pay your annual subscription please make sure you use the correct form.

We do not provide any other additional bins. Extra recycling can be put out on collection day in untied carrier bags so we can see the contents and easily tip them out.
