Replacement Wheelie Bins

Many local authorities issue wheelie bins free of charge to residents to use for refuse collection and recycling use.  If your wheelie bin is damaged or stolen then please check with your local authority to see what their policy is with regards to replacements.  You may be able to obtain a replacement wheelie bin directly from your council free of charge or at least at a reduced cost. If your council won't issue you a free replacement then you may wish to buy wheelie bins online using our online store.

Normally if a bin is damaged because of a manufacturing defect or mishandling by the refuse collection workers while emptying it then your local authority will provide a replacement bin free of charge or at least offer you a free repair.  Council refuse disposal departments normally carry spares in order to repair wheelie bins, i.e replacement axles, lids, or wheels.

If your wheelie bin has been damaged due to negligence or misuse then it is likely that you will have to bear the cost of a replacement yourself.

Stolen Wheelie Bins

The theft of wheelie bins isn't exactly widespread.  Wheelie bins have little intrinsic value and the plastic that they are manufactured from is of little value as scrap material.  The main cause of wheelie bin theft is anti social behavior emanating from teenage pranksters.  Local authorities adopt different policies in regard to stolen bins and your council may insist that you buy a replacement bin yourself if yours is stolen. 

Council Wheelie Bins

Most of our customers are seeking to purchase or replace a domestic type wheeled bin as supplied by councils and local authorities for residential waste management and recycling use.  The most common size of wheelie bin issued by local authorities is the 240 Litre version as shown below.  

Before ordering a wheelie bin however please check with your local authority to determine the correct size to buy.

It is imperative that you ensure that your council's refuse disposal vehicles are able to handle the size of bin that you intend to purchase.  In most cases if you purchase the wrong size wheelie bin then your council will probably refuse to empty it.

RFID Chipping

An increasing number of local authorities are issuing wheelie bins that have RFID  (Radio Frequency Identification) chips installed, otherwise known as "Bin Bugs".  These RDFI chips allow the council to collect data about the amount of refuse each household is producing.  If you have more than one wheelie bin as most households do now for recycling purposes then this allows the local authority to build up a database of every household's quantity of domestic refuse produced and also to be able to produce a breakdown of these figures to determine the amount of rubbish each household is recycling as opposed to going to landfill.  RFID chips have been in use since around 2005.

So again to be compliant with your local authorities waste management policies please check with your council first before ordering a wheelie bin to see whether they allow privately purchased rubbish bins to be emptied by their refuse collection service. If your local authority is using RFID chipping then the chances are that you will have to purchase your bin directly from the council should your bin be stolen or otherwise damaged.
