Request an additional bin if you live in Poole

  • your household has 6 or more permanent residents
  • your household has 5 residents including a child in nappies
  • your household has 3 or more children in nappies
  • someone in your household has medical needs that create extra waste.

If this request relates to a communal property, we will carry out an assessment and may provide larger bins if necessary.
