Waste bin charges for new build housing
Midlothian Council charges for providing waste bins and recycling boxes to all new build housing.
The charge is payable when you apply for street naming and/or property numbering.
Midlothian homes are provided with:
- a grey wheeled bin for general (non-recyclable) waste
- a blue wheeled bin for dry mixed recycling
- a red box for glass bottles and jars
- a silver caddy for food waste (urban homes).
Residents of homes with gardens may also request a brown wheeled bin for garden waste.
|Offered the food waste collections service||Yes||No|
We will deliver waste/recycling containers once the property has been formally registered, and the occupier lets us know they have moved in.
