Find out how to order an extra waste, recycling or garden waste bin
Who can have an extra bin
We may be able to supply you with an extra bin, depending on the circumstances.
General waste (black bin)
If you're finding that your black bin is always full, you can put any extra general waste into a black plastic sack. You can seal each bag with a red tag (which you can purchase from our Council Information Centre at £1.80 each). And you can put it out with your bin on collection day. We'll only remove bags that are red-tagged.
You can also take your extra waste to one of Norfolk County Council's household recycling centres.
There are some circumstances where we may be able to supply you with an extra black bin.
To make a request, please complete our online form, and we'll assess your application. Or we may work with you to try to reduce the volume of your waste.
Recycling bins (green bin)
In most circumstances, additional green recycling bins are available free of charge. We'll inform you of any associated costs (if applicable) when you order your new bin(s).
Garden waste (brown bin)
You can order an extra bin for garden waste. The garden waste scheme is a chargeable service (currently an annual fee of £52 per bin). Once you've applied, we'll contact you about the pro-rata cost of adding the extra bin to your existing account.
