Request bins or recycling boxes

When you start the form, you will need to register or sign in with the City of Edinburgh Council customer account. Your account will have a record of your request.

Request bins or recycling boxes

With this form, you can order new and replacement

  • red and blue recycling boxes
  • food waste bins
  • green or grey wheelie bins
  • garden waste bins

if yours are damaged or missing.

We aim to deliver your bin or box within 10 working days after you submit your request.

You can no longer order covers for the blue boxes. If you live in the city centre and use red and blue boxes, we still provide covers for the red box service. Covers are available from Central and Stockbridge libraries.

You can buy compostable liners for your food waste caddy at all libraries for £1 a roll.

Find out what can be recycled and what goes in each bin.

You can also find your nearest on street recycling bins or use a recycling centre.
