Information for Planners

Developers should consider the amount of storage space required for the appropriate containers when designing/planning domestic properties. For more information download the leaflet

Waste Collection and Recycling Storage.pdf

The majority of houses are provided with  standard size wheeled bins, 240 litre size.

However, there are exceptions to this rule.

  • Small single occupancy properties may have 120/140 litre bins because of the quantity of refuse produced and/or the available storage space for bins.
  • Some large households may be issued with a large 360 litre bin.
  • A few properties in the borough are still on black sack collections. This is usually due to access issues either for a vehicle or for personnel.

Every property has three wheeled bins: a black/grey one for residual waste and a green one for garden waste. The bins are normally the same size and are collected on alternate weeks. Each property also has a blue wheeled bin for recycling. This is normally the same size as the black and green and is collected on the same day as the green bin.
