Request a standard wheelie bin, recycling box, recycling bags or food waste caddy

If you live in a large block of flats and need a replacement communal (shared) bin, your managing agent will need buy or hire these privately by contacting the commercial waste service. If you're not sure whether or not you have communal bins, fill in the form above to find out.

Our standard wheelie bins are 180 litres. Some households can get a larger, 240 litre wheelie bin.
