Additional Bin Capacity

Please be aware that submitting an application does not automatically qualify you for this service. Every case will be assessed and a home visit may be carried out by one of our Waste Team. If successful your case will be reviewed annually.

Extra capacity non-recycling bins are available for people with a medical condition that generates extra waste, or for households that have 6 or more permanent residents.

Extra recycling bins are available to all households.


In accordance with the Code of Practice - Household Recycling in Scotland, to request an extra capacity bin you will need to complete a Waste Audit form over two weeks. You will also need to provide the details of 6 full-time residents in your household.
