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 or charge. We provide these to use with your brown recycling bin to help make food waste recycling cleaner and easier. Kitchen caddies and compostable liners can also be collected from libraries, Bury Town Hall, 3 Knowsley Place, Six Town Housing at 6 Knowsley Place or Customer Support and Collections at Whittaker Street in Radcliffe.
About requesting a new or replacement rubbish bin
Please note: Delivery of grey bins is currently on hold due to an increase in demand and lack of stock. Deliveries will re-commence from 8 February. We will fulfil your order as soon as we can after this date and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause in the meantime. If you need bags to use until you take delivery of your bin, please phone 0161 253 5353 to request them.
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.
