Repair or replace your bin

Sometimes wheelie bins get damaged but we can repair issues such as:

  • missing lid
  • split lid
  • missing lid pins
  • repairs to bin wheels

If your bin can’t be fixed or has been stolen, you can order a replacement for £25 by calling the waste services hotline 01472 326288 option 2.

Request more recycling boxes

You can order up to three free recycling boxes a year by calling the waste services hotline 01472 326288 option 2. We can deliver them to your home or you can collect from the Grimsby Recycling Centre (the tip).

Swap your bin

You might be able to change your bin for one that is larger if your household has:

  • six or more permanent residents
  • five residents with one child in nappies
  • three or more children in nappies
  • someone has medical needs

If you think you’re eligible you can call the waste services hotline 01472 326288 option 2 and request swapping your bin.
