Online forms: Request a Second Grey Bin
Families of 5 and below should be able to manage with one 240 litre wheeled bin, the exception being if there is a family of 5 including children in nappies.
If there are 5 or less people in your home, and you don't have children in nappies, you won't qualify for an extra grey bin. However, we can provide extra containers for recycling/garden waste if required.
If you have 6 or more living in your property, or have children in nappies, or if you believe there are exceptional circumstances, you can request for an additional grey bin.
As part of our assessment we may carry out a waste analysis at your house. We will examine 2 weeks of grey bin waste. Any recyclable waste found in the bin will be removed. Once this has been done, the remaining waste is put back into the grey bin and if the lids shuts down, you won't qualify for an extra bin.
Please fill in all the required fields on this form to submit your request for a second grey bin to Pendle Council.
If you need a replacement bin, please use our order a new bin form.
