New build properties bin allocation

From 1 April 2011, the full complement of containers, relevant to the collection service to be provided, require to be purchased from Waste Management Services.

On a weekly basis, Waste Management Services will receive a list of all developments which have received full planning permission. As each property is due to be occupied for the first time, a Notification of Occupancy form is required to be completed and sent to Waste Management Services.

Containers will only be supplied to properties upon receipt of this form.

All containers provided to new occupiers must be supplied by Waste Management Services to ensure that Health and Safety considerations and conformity to lifting equipment are met. Failure to supply the correct containers will result in the non-collection of containers.

With the exception of communal waste areas, which will have been identified and agreed at planning application stage, a typical residential property requires (as at 1 July 2018):

  • 1 x 240L green bin (landfill waste bin)
  • 1 x 240L brown bin (garden waste)
  • 1 x recycling trolley ( paper & card, plastics, cartons, cans, glass)
  • 1 x external food caddy (for food collections)
  • 1 x internal food caddy (to be kept in kitchen)

Residents with surplus recyclate can present bagged materials alongside the recycling trolley as well as bagged textiles, small electrical items or household batteries. For more information visit the recycling trolley and frequently asked questions web pages. 

The purchase cost will be the supply cost incurred by the Council plus a 10% administration fee.  An option to be supplied with a blue bin (previoulsy used for paper/card collections) and labelled for garden waste or landfill waste use is available.   

Developers are required to notify occupancy on a per property basis, and an invoice will be issued accordingly. For self build/owner occupiers, an option to pay by card is available.

For additional information regarding the supply of containers to new build properties, please contact Waste Management Services.
