Our new big bin hire service is now available to residents of West Lindsey.

If you are having a major clear out or a big spring clean, our new service will enable you to hire one of our large wheeled bins for a period of one week. 

There's a choice of two bin sizes, both available for a 1 week hire:

  • 1100 litre bin at £60.00 (measuring 1360mm wide by 920mm deep by 1380mm high)
  • 660 litre bin at £50.00 (measuring 1250mm wide by 710mm deep by 1310mm high)

For your convenience, you can select your preferred delivery or collection date within a 48-hour slot. Please note that you must have somewhere suitable for the bin to be sited within your property boundary to make use of this service, as bins cannot be left on footpaths or other public areas.

This service will be really useful if you are unable to use your local Household Waste Recycling Centre and is aimed at non-recyclable waste.

Please remember to continue to use your recycling bins at home as much as possible and donate unwanted items to charity shops where you can. This service is aimed at items which are either non-recyclable or at at the end of their useful life.

This service is exclusively for householders and is not permitted for commercial waste.

There are some items which are not allowed in our big bins and these include, but not limited to, tyres, mattresses, hazardous waste, and electrical items. Please see our terms and conditions for full details.

You will be able to choose a date for your bin to be delivered and it will then be collected back the following week. 

Please note that these larger bins have brakes on them which are above the wheels at the front of the bin. These brakes will be applied when the bin is delivered.  It is recommended that you leave the bin in the location we have delivered it to. However, if you do need to move the bin, you would have to release the brakes and re-apply once re-located. The bin needs to be in its original location for collection.

Make a booking for our Big Bin Hire.

Here are some examples of what these bins can be used for:

  • odd bits of wood
  • plastic items, such as broken watering cans and buckets
  • hose pipes
  • broken deck chairs
  • old shelving
  • old garden tools
  • empty tins of paint
  • plastic plant pots
  • pieces of garden trellis
  • pop-up tents

  • washing up bowls
  • cutlery trays
  • wicker baskets
  • cushions
  • polystyrene packaging

Anything which is still in good condition should instead be donated to charity shops.
