Requesting an additional bin

Most Doncaster residents are issued with a 240 litre capacity black wheeled bin for domestic waste, where collection issues do not allow for a wheeled bin, residents are provided with a standard dustbin/sack collection.

  • two children under 3.5 years old

There is a non-refundable administration charge of £32 payable for the bin at the time the request is made.

Please note: The property should be occupied, wheeled bins will not be delivered to empty properties. All containers remain the property of the council.
