  • Information about ordering a new bin

    • You can only order one of each type of bin or recycling box.
    • All recycling bins and boxes are free.
    • If you need to order a recycling bin but aren't sure which type you need, call us on 0800 032 8100.
    • You can't order a glass recycling box online. To order a glass recycling box, call us on 0800 032 8100.
    • When you order a food waste bin, we'll give you a food waste caddy too.
    • You can't order a food waste bin if you have a recycling bin or compost bin.
    • Each household can usually only have one general waste bin. If you already have a general waste bin you can use, you can't order another one online. However, we may provide an extra general waste bin if there is a large family of six or more permanent residents, or if someone in the household has a medical condition which results in extra waste that can’t be recycled. If this applies, you can contact us on 0800 032 8100 or email wastemanagement@belfastcity.gov.uk to arrange an assessment.
    • If you need more green food waste bags, please tie your last bag to your food waste bin. You can also collect a roll of food waste bags from your local recycling centre.
    • If your apartment block does not have a food waste collection please email us  or phone 0800 032 8100. Remember to leave your name and full postal address.
    • Replacement lids for recycling boxes can be ordered by emailing wastemanagement@belfastcity.gov.uk or 0800 032 8100. 

    When you contact us please remember to leave your name and full postal address.
