Request a bin or bag
New or replacement bags
You can collect a free household waste, recycling or garden waste bag from one of our libraries or the 1st Stop shop, or we can deliver it. You'll need to bring a reference number and proof of your address to collect your bag - fill in the 'request a bag' form below to get your reference number or arrange delivery.
Alternative weekly collection has been implemented in Plymouth to help increase recycling and reduce the amount of brown waste we're throwing away as a city. If you're requesting an exchange of your bins please note that we're not able to exchange brown bins for larger ones or additional bins, and have guidance available on what goes in each bin to help reduce the amount of general waste you are disposing. We're able to exchange green bins so that you're able to increase your recycling waste.
If your bin has been damaged or stolen you can collect another one from Prince Rock depot; Monday to Thursday from 9am to 4pm or Friday from 9am to 3pm. Please call 01752 668000 before you come to pick it up as we need to give you a reference number.
Replacement bins are free if you collect them or we can deliver for £15.
If you don't have much rubbish and your bin is too big we can replace it with a smaller 140 litre bin.
