Glass mini bins are here!

Thursday 22 August 2019

We’ve now got glass mini bins for you to test. 

The bins are 47L in size and 62cm high (plus handle) and 40cm wide. 

We’ll start by delivering them to residents who have been on the waiting list, so if you’ve already requested one there’s nothing you need to do. Your new bin will be delivered over the next two weeks. 

If you would like to request a mini bin please send your full address to

To test the bins properly we need to roll them out across a couple of hundred properties. So even if you don’t request it, your crate might be swapped for a mini bin when we next collect your glass on Tuesday 3 September. 

You don’t need to do anything. Just put your glass crate out as normal for collection, and we will give you a new mini bin and take the old crate away.
