We are now accepting new applications, however, due to restrictions due to Covid we continue to work through a backlog of requests. We appreciate your patience while we work through all applications.
Waste Services can provide additional green bin waste capacity where the request is related to a medical need that generates hygiene or clinical waste, or where there are at least 2 chidren in nappies or 6 or more permanent residents in the household.
Please note that no additional green bin capacity will be provided unless households clearly demonstrate that recycling services are being fully utilised.
No additional capacity is available in respect of waste arising as a result of keeping household pets.
Requests for additional or larger blue recycling bins will be considered.
If you require additional green bin waste capacity, please download the form via the link provided and return to the address at the bottom of this page.
Once we receive your form we will process your request and if necessary we will arrange a visit by a Waste Officer to make sure you are fully utilising your existing recycling facilities.
Review of entitlement
Please note that entitlement to additional capacity will be reviewed periodically, with householders notified and requested to re-apply.
