Request bins

Charges for new or replacement bins


If your bin is damaged or has gone missing you will need to order a replacement.

Due to a reduction in central government funding, we can no longer afford to provide replacement bins at entirely our own cost.

The following charges apply for black general household and brown garden waste bins. Green recycling and food waste bins (where the service is provided) are free of charge.

​​​​​​​​
Bin typeCost
Standard sized 240 litre black and brown wheelie bins£15.40
Small 140 litre black wheelie bins£15.40
Black hand bins for households on bag collections only £10.00
​​

Bins are replaced on a like for like basis. (e.g. standard size for standard size)


How to order


If you have a damaged bin, require a new, or replacement bin, please use our Request a new or replacement bin form to place an order.

If you are ordering a black or brown bin, please have your debit or credit card details ready.


Delivery


We aim to deliver bins within 10 working days of the request being received. Deliveries take place between 7am-3pm and you do not need to be home as we will try to leave the bin in a secure place wherever possible.


Additional bins


If you are already recycling all you can, but require an additional green recycling bin or black general household waste bin, use our form to request a bin.

You will need to provide information about the number of people permanently living at your household, and any special requirements they may have. If you are eligible for an additional black or green bin, the above charges will apply.

We do not provide additional brown garden waste bins as they are limited to one per household and your address must be on an existing collection route. You can check if you are on a route by entering your postcode in the check your bin day search facility. If your property is on a garden waste collection route, the search results will show collection dates for the brown bin.


Removal of a bin

If you have a bin which you do not use you can request for it to be removed. You must ensure that the bin is free from any waste and presented at an easily accessible point of your property to allow the crew to collect it.

You can also use this form if you wish to opt out of garden waste collections. If there is a bin on the public footpath or road which requires removal, please visit our fly tipping page for more information.


New bins for new build properties


If you are a builder or developer, please complete the application form (PDF 128KB) to request bins. Every request needs to be made using this form, regardless of the size of the development. Please send the completed form to bin.deliveries@leeds.gov.uk so that your request can be assessed and priced individually. Please ensure you provide as much notice as possible, as delivery of bins can take up to six weeks.

If you have moved into a new build property and require a bin, contact the developer or your landlord who will order one from us. If you have moved into a converted property the developer will need to register the property onto a bin route first. If your landlord is Leeds City Council or a related PFI scheme they need to email us directly at bin.deliveries@leeds.gov.uk


Communal bins


If you use a communal bin for disposing of your waste and a replacement for a damaged or missing bin is required, please contact your landlord or managing agent, who should send the request to bin.deliveries@leeds.gov.uk. Please note that charges apply for all types of communal bins, and the cost will be confirmed upon assessment of the bin size and quantity required.
