Please note, the replacement bin supplied may be a clean second hand bin.
Bins that have gone missing following collection may turn up in a couple of days, therefore we ask that residents wait at least 48 hours before requesting a replacement bin.
To reduce the likelihood of your bin being lost of stolen, MVDC advises that residents write their house name or number clearly on their own bin/s. Stickers for this purpose can be collected from reception at Pippbrook in Dorking or the HelpShop in Leatherhead library, or call 01306 885001 to have a sticker sent to you in the post.
If your bin becomes damaged, MVDC will arrange a replacement, provided we can collect the broken one.
Please note, there is a charge for replacement black refuse bins. Bins that have fallen into the collection vehicle or that have been damaged during collection are exempt from this charge.
*Indoor food waste caddies can be collected from our Pippbrook Council Offices in Dorking or the Help Shop in Leatherhead. We will only deliver an indoor caddy as part of a food waste bin set.
Upon request, MVDC provide additional recycling bins to households who regularly have excess recycling that cannot fit in their bin, alternatively clear recycling sacks should be used if you produce excess recycling on an ad hoc basis (e.g. around Christmas). Clear recycling bags can be collected from our Pippbrook offices in Dorking or Leatherhead HelpShop.
You may qualify for an additional black bin if you meet certain requirements (e.g. large household size or have children in nappies), charges apply.
For more information, please call 01306 885001.
Changing your bin size
To swap your bin for a different size, please request a bin via the online form. Please note, there is a charge of £20 to upsize from a 140L black wheeled bin to a 240L black wheeled bin.
Existing properties in the district should already have bins. Residents moving into an existing property without bins can request them online, a charge is applied to black refuse bins.
New build properties
For brand new properties the cost of bins is covered by the development fee, this does not apply for converted properties.
Please check with the property developer as to whether they have ordered bins for your property before requesting them via our online form.
Flats and communal properties are supplied with large bulk refuse bins, recycling bins and food waste bins. Requests for new or additional bulk bins should be directed to your managing agent or housing association.
