Additional Capacity Requests
As of the 8th July 2020 all requests for additional recycling capacity have been put on hold due to low stock of the larger blue recycling bins.
Covid Lockdown has resulted in a great increase in requests for additional capacity so the larger blue bin stock has been run down quicker than expected.
If you fulfil the below criteria please contact us from Monday, 3rd August to request a larger capacity blue bin.
Residents who have more recycling than they can fit into their blue wheelie bin on a regular basis may be able to have a larger blue bin (subject to sufficient resources).
Please be aware that additional recycling capacity will NOT be provided if a resident has had their recycling bin rejected (a tag attached to the bin) for contamination within the previous three months..
If a resident has not been ‘tagged’ for contamination in accordance with the above they can telephone our Contact Centre on 01543 462621 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and give their details.
The resident will then be contacted by the recycling officer to arrange a visit to the household in order to ensure that only accepted items/materials are being recycled.
Delivery of the bin will then commence and monitoring may occur to ensure that the extra capacity is not being abused.
The Council may remove any extra capacity for recyclables if it is not being used correctly.
