Information for developers and architects

When designing and building property, providing adequate recycling and waste facilities is key to increasing recycling rates and ensuring the correct recycling and waste capacity is provided.

It is council policy for communal bins to be at equal capacity for refuse and recycling.

You can contact us if:

  • your property is a House of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) and has multiple containers of the same type, these can be exchanged for a larger communal bin at a cost
  • your development requires more frequent collections (there is an additional cost for this service).

The location of bins for collection must be in line with the council’s policies, this may be changed at any time to ensure collections are carried out efficiently.
