Salford City Council provides a domestic refuse collection service (black bin) for all homes in the city.
Only use your black bin to dispose of items that cannot be recycled such as:
Please be aware that only one black bin is permitted at each household.
Please use our online reporting form as soon as possible. Where practical, alternative arrangements will be made.
Use our online form to order a new bin. A £26.20 administration and delivery charge is payable for all new and replacement standard sized bins.
If you'd like to exchange your smaller 140 litre bin for the standard 240 litre bin you will need to complete the request a new or replacement black bin form and pay £26.20. The small bin will need to be left in an accessible place at the front of the property so that it can be exchanged.
If there are more than six people living in your home or if somebody has a certain medical condition and you’re recycling everything you can, you may qualify for a larger black bin. There is a charge of £52.50 for a large black bin. To arrange this, you need to book an appointment for a waste awareness officer to visit your home. They can then order the bin on your behalf if you qualify.
Please do not put your bin out before 7pm the night before collection and collect it by 11pm on the day of collection.
By putting your bin out on the street only when necessary and bringing it in as soon as possible after collection, you can help reduce the likelihood of bins being stolen. Read more about our take it in policy.
We operate the following policy regarding the issue of wheelie bins for domestic properties:
Did you know that around 100,000 bins are emptied throughout Salford each week producing about 2,000 tonnes of rubbish?
With your help, around 70 to 80% of Salford's domestic waste could be recycled so that it does not end up in landfill sites.
Salford City Council sees recycling as being very important and we are always looking for ways to provide you with easier access to recycling facilities.
