General waste (green) bins

Please contact us on 01274 431000 if you need a new bin or if your bin has been stolen.

How much is it for a new general waste bin?

The charge for a new small 140 litre bin or standard 240 litre bin is £39.

This charge is for administration and delivery. The bin will remain the property of Bradford Council.

We will only empty one general waste bin from each household, unless otherwise agreed.

What if I can’t manage putting my bin out?

If you can’t move your bin and you have no one who can help you we offer assisted collections, please contact us.

What if one bin isn’t big enough for my household?

If one general waste bin isn’t big enough, households with 7 or more permanent residents may apply for extra capacity for their general waste bin but only if they are actively recycling.

The Council will offer advice and information on recycling and will conduct a waste audit to determine if extra capacity is required for general waste. Please call 01274 431000 to request an application form. If your application is successful you will be offered extra capacity on the understanding that you must pay £39 for administration and delivery. Following receipt of your payment extra capacity will be authorised. Any existing general waste bins will be removed when extra capacity is authorised.

Unfortunately as of June 2022 there are no 360 litre bins in stock. Please contact 01274 431000 for further information.

Repairs of bins

We carry a stock of lids and wheels and we try to repair bins where possible. This service is free. Please contact us to arrange for this to be carried out.

If we can’t repair the damage you will have to request a new bin. Standard bin charges will apply.
