Large households

Households with 6 or more permanent residents, struggling to fit all of their non recyclable rubbish into the grey bin, may be entitled to a larger or additional grey bin. Please phone us on 01926 456128 for further information.

Households with children in disposable nappies

Households with children using disposable nappies may be entitled to a larger or additional grey bin for a limited time period. This only applies to households with 5 or more permanent residents including the child/children in nappies. Please phone us on 01926 456128 for further information.

Switch to Cotton Nappies

Switching to cotton nappies prevents over 4,000 nappies per child going to landfill and could be over £500 cheaper than using disposable nappies. Warwickshire County Council offers a FREE 2 week trial kit to residents of Warwickshire and 10% off any follow up purchase of real nappies. Email cottonon@warwickshire.gov.uk or phone 01926 412593 for further details.

Medical conditions

Residents who produce extra waste due to medical reasons (e.g. incontinence waste, etc.) may be entitled to a larger or additional grey bin if they are struggling to fit it all in the standard size grey bin.

Legislation allows for any of the following types of waste to be disposed of in your grey bin:

Items used to dispose of urine, faeces and other bodily secretions or excretions, this includes used disposable bed pans or bed pan liners, incontinence pads, stoma bags and urine containers where there is NO risk of infection.

If the resident has an infection for which they are being treated (e.g. with antibiotics) a clinical waste collection needs to be arranged.
