Exchange your garden waste bin


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.

Exchange your garden waste bin. You must already be subscribed to the garden waste collection scheme first. 

Please note: If you have two smaller bins and wish to exchange for two larger bins, you must have already signed up for collection from two bins. If you have signed up for collections from one bin, you can exchange two smaller bins for one standard size bin.

Unfortunately we are unable to replace our standard sized garden waste bins with a smaller bin.
