Street Litter and Dog Waste bins

Street Litter bins and dog waste bins are receptacles for residents and visitors to use while away from their home. They are provided to help control levels of litter and dog fouling.

The councils regularly empties around 2000 litter and dog waste bins in the districts as part of  the street cleansing service. Depending on their location and usage, bins are either emptied on a daily or weekly basis - typically bins in town centres are emptied daily, while bins in rural locations and play areas are emptied weekly.

The majority of litter and dog waste bins positioned on the street are owned by the town and parish councils, who decide where they are sited and how many they have. 

Bins in parks, play areas or on private land are the responsibility of the respective land owner or manager.

Bin Requests

To request a new litter or dog waste bin in your local area or to request removal or relocation of an existing bin, you will need to contact your town or parish council, or the land owner or manager.

Full or Overflowing Bins

If you see an overflowing litter or dog waste bin on the street  park or play area, please report this online. Reports of overflowing bins will be investigated and an extra empty will be arranged if necessary.
