Brown bins

We will only deliver a brown bin to a property where payment for the service has been made.

Subscriptions to the 2021 service have now closed, as collections end between 8 and 19 November.

You will be able to sign up and pay for 2022 collections from early January 2022. Please request a bin once you have paid for the service. We will deliver your brown bin in time for your first uplift.
