Order bins and bags for waste and recycling

Use this service to order bins and bags for:

  • rubbish
  • recycling
  • food waste

You can also request:

  • a new rubbish bin if your bin is lost or damaged (for any replacement bins required by your household, we reserve the right to charge a £10 admin fee)
  • an extra rubbish bin if you need more bin space

You can only get an extra rubbish bin if your household either:

  • has 5 or more people
  • uses children’s nappies
  • needs to for medical or hygiene reasons – for example, you use large amounts of sanitary items

If you need a smaller rubbish bin, email recycling@hackney.gov.uk.
