New Development Container Request

Under the Waste and Recycling Policy [pdf] 106KB, the responsibility for the provision of containers for the collection of recyclables, residual waste and food waste for all new developments is the responsibility of the developer.

We have listed below the number and type of containers that are required.

Bins can be purchased directly from the council using the online form at the bottom of this page. Alternatively developers are welcome to procure the containers from other sources, they are however unlikely to receive the same preferential rates and delivery timescales. All containers must fully comply with the council standards and specifications.
