Order a bin

If you move into a house in Croydon, the previous resident should have left the bins for you. If they haven't, you will need to order a replacement.

What to do if you don't have a bin

If you don’t have the correct bin or box please separate your recycling into untied carrier bags on your collection day:

  • One set of bags containing paper and cardboard
  • Another set of bags containing tins, bottles, jars and plastics etc

No general rubbish bin

General rubbish should be in tied bin bags and put out on your collection day
