Developers: bins for new builds

How it works

As a developer of residential housing you will be required to:

  • provide bins for residents moving into properties
  • provide suitable storage/presentation areas for domestic general rubbish and recyclable waste which must be safely accessible for both residents and our collection crews
  • tell us when residents are moving into the properties

We recommend you consult with our waste team in the initial planning stages. We can then work together on options and decide on the best waste management solution.

Planning guidance

Planning applications should include full and clear details of the waste management proposals. This important information can form part of the initial application or sometimes be agreed through a planning condition. You can also apply to us for pre-application advice.

For advice on the provisions needed for the containment, storage and collection of waste, including the separation of recyclable materials, see our Waste Management Planning guides:
