Request a Second Grey Bin

Families of 5 and below should be able to manage with one 240 litre bin.

If there are 5 or less people in your home, and you do not have children in nappies, you will not qualify for an extra grey bin. 

If you have 6 or more living in your property, or have children in nappies, or if you think there are exceptional circumstances, use this form to make a request for an additional grey bin.


Once a request has been received, we will visit your house and look at 2 weeks of grey bin waste. We will remove any waste that could be recycled. If the lid of the grey bin shuts fully on the remaining waste, you will not qualify for an extra bin.

Current assessments for grey bin requests will not take place until April 2018, after the changes to our recycling collections have been introduced.

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.
