New Build Properties

New Bins

If you've moved into a newly built property and require bins, you can request them using the form below. There will be a charge of £62.00 for delivery and provision of two bins, a black one for recycling and a green one for household waste. Payment will be required before the bins are delivered. It may be worth checking with your developer as they may have already contacted us to arrange delivery.

What is the charge actually covering?

The charge of £62 covers the costs for the administration, procurement, storage, cleaning (if necessary) and delivery of the bins. This transaction does not constitute a sale and the wheeled bins remain the property of Breckland Council and must be left with the property if you move house.

Doesn't my council tax cover the provision of wheeled bins?

The collection and disposal of your waste will still be paid for out of your council tax, just not the one off cost for the wheeled bins when a property is first built. This policy is becoming increasingly common amongst Councils as budget pressures grow.


If you are a developer or private landlord and need to request bins please fill in our form below. Our Environmental Services team will review the request and get back to you within 5 working days to confirm the order of the bins and arrange payment.
