Request a free wheelie private bin disposal

  • Date Format: DD slash MM slash YYYY
  • Privately owned wheelie bins cannot be emptied as part of the new rubbish collection service. We want to be fair to all residents, so we want everyone to use the same size container. To achieve our main aim of reducing rubbish and increasing recycling, we need to put a limit on how much non-recycled rubbish people can put out. Also, our collection vehicles may not work properly or safely with other types of bins.

    In Spring 2021, we will also be offering a bin amnesty, giving residents the chance to have their privately owned wheelie bins disposed of free of charge. Bins collected via the bin amnesty will be recycled. We will be tagging privately owned bins with information about disposal. Alternatively, you can use your bin to store things such as garden tools and equipment etc.

    Please note that only wheelie bins will be collected, dustbins will not be collected as part of the bin amnesty. Dustbins can be disposed of at the Chigwell Road Reuse and Recycling Centre (RRC), Chigwell Road, Woodford Bridge, IG8 8PP.
