Additional Bin Capacity

Do you need extra capacity for recycling or general waste?

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 non-recycling waste, or for households that have 6 or more permanent residents.

Extra recycling bins are available to all households.

Please select why extra capacity is required:

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.
