Get your free green waste bin

Order yours online

More than a thousand garden waste bins are being delivered daily by us to homes in the north of the area.

But residents can still order them online. The 240-litre green wheelie bins are completely free and intended to replace the current system of two garden waste bags per household.

The new bins are not compulsory, however, and those who have smaller gardens can keep using the bags if they prefer.

Households may only have the one bin which can be used as soon as it is delivered. They will be emptied on the same day as the garden waste bags were.

Once residents start using the bins they will not be able to use the bags as well.

We’ve been very pleased at how popular the garden waste bins are proving to be.

But as residents start to do their garden tidy-ups before winter anyone who wants one but hasn’t yet ordered one should do so.
