Communal bin review

About the communal bin review

We want to improve our recycling and waste services for people living in flats and to improve the look of our neighbourhoods.

The project will make it easier for residents to recycle by ensuring they have access to a full range of recycling bins and improved bin signage to make it easier to know what goes in each bin. 

We have also redesigned the information leaflet to help you understand how to reduce, re-use and recycle your waste. This  may not be fully accessible, if you need help, please contact

An assessment of all the sites has already taken place and we’ve reviewed which bins are already available and where new bins need to be installed. As part of the assessment we have ensured that the sites will comply with regulations and help make it easier to recycle.

We are creating bin hubs  throughout the city for

  • non-recyclable waste
  • food waste
  • glass
  • plastic, tins, cans, paper and cardboard.
