Household Waste FAQ's

I have moved into a new build property and don't have a household waste bin. Can I have one?

Yes. If you have moved into a new build property you can request a household bin free of charge. Please call our Contact Centre on 01642 774774, or email contactus@redcar-cleveland.gov.uk, to request a new bin.



There are more that 5 people living in my property and my household waste bin is too small to accommodate the amount of waste we produce. Can I have a larger waste bin?

Yes. You can request a larger household waste bin if there are more than 5 people living in your property. Please call our Contact Centre on 01642 774774, or email contactus@redcar-cleveland.gov.uk, to request a new bin.


What happens to my household waste after collection?


After collection, your household waste is taken to our Energy From Waste plant. Household waste is incinerated here in order to produce energy, diverting it from going to landfill. None of our household waste goes to landfill. If the EFW plant is not working then this is the only time any of your waste goes to landfill - this is an extremely rare occasion.
