Request a bin
Please note: All the bins we provide you with belong to Bury Council.
About requesting recycling bins
We provide blue, green and brown recycling bins free of charge. If you have extra recycling and need an extra blue or green recycling bin, these are free of charge too. Please note that we don't provide extra brown bins.
About requesting a new or replacement kitchen caddy with compostable liners
We provide a kitchen caddy and compostable liners free of charge to use with your brown recycling bin to help make food waste recycling cleaner and easier.
Kitchen caddies and compostable liners can be collected from:
- Bury Town Hall, Knowsley Street, Bury
- 3 Knowsley Place (opposite Bury Town Hall)
- Six Town Housing, 6 Knowsley Place, Bury (liners only)
- Customer Support and Collections, Whittaker Street, Radcliffe
Alternatively, we can deliver a caddy and liners to your home when we are in your area making other deliveries. Please note this may take up to 28 days.
About requesting a new or replacement rubbish bin
Rubbish bins are grey and should only be used for waste you can't recycle. There is a £30 administration and delivery charge for a new or replacement rubbish bin, unless you already have a small (140 litre) bin and want to swap it for a full size (240 litre) bin. There is no charge to upsize from a small bin to a full size bin. When a charge does apply you must pay this before we can process your order.
About requesting an extra grey rubbish bin
You should be able to recycle around 70% of your household waste using your recycling bins. However, if you are a larger family or household with extra waste that can't recycled, such as disposable nappies, you can request an extra grey household rubbish bin.
As part of the application process you will need to provide proof of the number and ages of the people permanently living at your address and prove that you recycle as much of your household waste as you can. We may also visit your home to carry out a waste audit and offer help and advice on how you can better manage your waste.
If your application is successful you will be required to pay a £30 administration and delivery change before we deliver your second grey bin.
Extra grey household rubbish bins are supplied with a red lid so that the bin can easily be identified as an authorised extra bin. Applications for extra grey bins are usually reviewed annually.
