Replace, exchange or return your garden waste bin


Find out what to do if your bin is missing, you want a standard sized bin, or you no longer want to use the garden waste scheme and want us to take your bin away.

Our 2021 garden waste scheme is no longer open for new subscriptions. Information on our 2022 scheme will be available later in the year.

Replace or exchange you bin

You can apply for a replacement bin if it has been damaged, lost or stolen.

If you currently have a small garden waste bin, you can exchange it for a standard sized garden waste bin free of charge. The standard size bin is the same size as your recycling bin. This mainly applies to residents in the former Easington and Wear Valley council areas. You must already be subscribed to the scheme for at least the number of bins that you want to receive.

Return your bin

Contact us to arrange for us to collect your bin from your property. Please place it at your collection point on the agreed collection date. Please note, if you decide at a later date to join the garden waste scheme, and need a bin, there will be a £20 charge for a replacement bin.
