Order extra bins

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 pink or red tag. These cost £2.35 each (plus £2.00 postage). You can find out more and order them on our red tags page.

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 £60 per bin). Once you've applied, we'll contact you about the pro-rata cost of adding the extra bin to your existing account.
