Assisted uplifts

An assisted uplift is for older people, those with a medical condition or a disability who are unable to present their recycling bins at their collection point.

Those requesting an assisted uplift must meet three criteria:

  • live at the property permanently, and
  • have no physically able person over 16 living at the property, and
  • be aged over 75, or in receipt of state benefits (listed on the application form below), or have a disability or health condition that prevents you from moving a wheeled bin

If you meet the criteria and would like to apply, then you can either contact us:

Or complete the online assisted uplift application form.

Please note, if your property is more than 30 meters from the collection point or if access to your bins is hazardous, then it may not be possible to collect your recycling bins.
