Litter bins and dog waste bins

Litter and dog waste bins will be checked on a regular basis. The frequency of litter and dog waste bin emptying will be determined by location and need, however all bins will be emptied at least once per week.

Damaged bins

When a damaged bin is reported, it will be dealt with as follows:

  • Minor damage will be repaired within 2 working days
  • Burnt out and seriously damaged bins will be removed within 1 working day

Where it is deemed appropriate to replace a damaged bin, a replacement should be in place within 5 working days.

To report a damaged bin, please call the Environment Contact Centre on 01642 726001.

Request for new bins

When we get a request for a new litter or dog waste bin, an officer will visit the location and decide whether it's a suitable location for a bin. New bins will be installed in areas where they will improve the cleanliness of the street. If we decide the location is not suitable, we may look at how often we clean the street instead.

To request a new bin, complete the online bin request form.
