Please note, wheelie bins should be presented from 6am on the day of collection.
Most homes in the borough are issued with a 180-litre black wheelie bin for waste which cannot be recycled.
How can I get black sacks?
Black sacks are supplied free of charge to properties that do not have provision for a wheeled bin.
The bags will be delivered on a like-for-like basis. Please see the Exempt Properties page for instruction on how to correctly use your black sacks. Residents using a communal bin will need to provide their own sacks.
If you are currently using black sacks but would like to have a wheelie bin instead, please contact email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01509 634563.
Please ensure that all waste is inside the black sacks and not loose inside in the bin.
Replacement black bins
We will only replace a black bin if it is broken. If your black bin does need replacing it will be replaced with a 180-litre black bin. Charnwood Borough Council now only distribute 180-litre black bins as we feel this is adequate for most households and will reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and encourage recycling.
To order a replacement bin, please use for the form below:
Additional black bins
If there is a medical issue within a household which creates additional domestic waste, we are able to provide a second black bin provided that medical evidence can be sent.
Any additional black bins will be 180 litres.
E-cigarette batteries cannot be recycled or included in your refuse waste. Please contact Leicestershire County Council for more information on how to dispose of them.
