You can now choose to increase the size of either your burgundy or brown recycling bin by decreasing the size of your general waste bin.
You can have:
- 240 litre burgundy bin, and 140 litre brown and general waste bins
- 240 litre brown bin, and 140 litre burgundy and general waste bins
In other words, you are entitled to three bins. Only one of them can be 240 litre.
If you already have 140 litre general, burgundy and brown recycling bins you can exchange either the 140 litre brown OR burgundy bin for the larger 240 litre size, free of charge. If you do not have a bin to upsize you would need to purchase one.
Your existing bin(s) will be removed when the new bins are delivered. Once exchanged, if you wish to go back to smaller recycling bins and have a 240 litre general waste bin there will be a charge for a bigger 240 litre general bin.
In other words, if you find the 140 litre general waste bin is not big enough, you will need to pay to go back to a 240 litre general waste bin, and you will also have to reduce your recycling bin back to 140 litre.
