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 3 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 3 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.
