How Do I Order More Equipment and Service Requests

Click on the link to My Services to request the services below:

  • Recycling Boxes
  • Bins
  • Hessian bags for extra items
  • Food Bags
  • Nappy/hygiene collections
  • Bulky waste items
  • Assisted collection


Any requests for additional items above will be checked and monitored by the Waste Team to ensure that households do require these items for the purposes of recycling. The Authority has noticed that recycling boxes and food caddies have been appearing in the hard/large plastic skip at our household waste and recycling centre. Please donate these direct to the site staff to allow us to pass them onto people that need them.

Household Items


If you have household items that are too big for your bin, such as an old fridge, television, a mattress or a chair and they are in good condition for someone else to use (including fire labels and glass safety accredited) or could do with an ‘upcycle’ please donate to one of the following:

Bulky Waste Collection


We will collect any large items that are at their end of life and not fit for reuse.   Charges for Bulky Waste Collection are £6 for each individual item so for example 3 items would cost £18.00. To book a collection contact us on 01495 311556 or  MyServices. Please make sure the items are outside your property at your bin collection point by 7am on the day of collection.  This service will not collect building materials, soil, sand, cement, loose timber or paint. You may be able to take some of these items to your local household waste recycling centre.  Please check what they will accept before making a journey:  https://www.blaenau-gwent.gov.uk/en/resident/waste-recycling/your-local-recycling-centre/.
