BANES response to installing new litter bins July 2021:
There is information about bins on our website here:
It includes the following:
It costs approximately £344 to supply and install a standard litter bin at this time, please note this is dependent on the unit price of each litter bin and the condition of the location in which the litter bin is to be installed. It currently costs between £49 and £109 to relocate an existing litter bin.
The Council does not have funding to install any new litter bins in new locations nor empty from new sites at this time. The Council has allocated capital funding to the replacement of damaged or worn out bins only.
We do have litter bins in some areas that are underutilised. We will look to remove these and try to replace them at new locations if the new location has a greater need.
If you see a litter bin that you think could be removed as it is not well used or badly damaged then please let us know by emailing Council Connect ([email protected]) with the location number found on the plaque.
If you already have identified funding, or would like to raise funds to install and empty any new litter bins in your neighbourhood, we can certainly help remove the waste on a schedule. Please do get in touch to discuss any ideas you may have by emailing us at [email protected]
