This represents a contribution towards the cost of supply,installation and any ongoing maintenance or repair of the bins.

Provision of bins to newly built properties is the responsibility of the developer, if you move into a new build and there is no provision for waste disposal please contact your developer.

Provision varies dependent on property type from two 240ltr bins for each standard domestic residence  up to 1100ltr bulk bins for properties in multiple occupancy.

Please note the following:

  • All bins will be supplied by Broxtowe Borough Council and remain the property of Broxtowe Borough Council

  • For multiple provision individual addresses must be provided by the purchaser for the collection service to commence

  • All payments must be made in advance (electronically or cheque) prior to containers being installed
