Residents may apply for a larger bin subject to meeting one of the following criteria (conditions apply):

  • Large family.
  • Young children.
  • Individuals with medical conditions which may generate special waste. 

To request a large bin please use the online form to check your eligibility. 

  • The information supplied will only be used for the purpose of assessing waste arrangements; however, it may be cross-referenced with Council records.
  • Applications are subject to continuous monitoring. Where it is found that recyclable material is not being recycling but placed in the general refuse bin, the refuse bin may be removed.
  • Households which no longer meet the criteria will revert to the standard 120 litre refuse bin.
