Secure your bin

There are a number of ways to keep your bin secure during high winds.

On collection day, if you opt to tether your bin it must in in a way that can be released and resecured quickly, if not then your bin may not be emptied.

Effective tethering options include:

  • bin enclosures and tethering points
  • bin handle brackets
  • bin lid straps
  • bungee cords
  • gate latches
  • modified bruck boxes

You can find out more on our securing your wheelie bin information booklet.

If the weather is bad and your recycling bin will last until the next collection, consider not presenting it.
