Garden waste bins (north)
If you live in the north of Central Bedfordshire (see map below) and want a new 240-litre garden waste bin, you can order one online.
If you need help to order your bin, please call 0300 300 8697 (lines open Monday to Friday, 8am until 5pm).
When we'll deliver your new bin
We're aiming to get the majority of bins delivered by the end of October. It's a big job and we'll get them out as fast as we can. Please don't call, asking us to deliver your bin sooner, because we won't be able to. We'll be delivering bins in phases, based on area, so please be patient and you'll get your new bin as soon as we can get it to you.
