Return a bin

Find out how to return a bin if you no longer need it.

When to return a bin

You may want to return a bin for a number of reasons. These include:

  • Green bins - you have decided not to pay for the green waste collection service.
  • Blue or purple bins - your property may have qualified for an additional blue or purple bin in the past, however you now no longer need it.

Please remember that if you do need another bin in the future we will charge you for it. 

When not to return a bin

If you are moving out of your property, please do not ask us to collect your bins, they should be left for the next occupant.
