Charging for bins at new developments
In January 2015 Rushcliffe Borough Council resolved in accordance with the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to charge a single payment for the first time provision of refuse containers to new properties constructed after this date.
The Council will make a charge for the provision of wheeled refuse containers in the following circumstances:
- Any new planning application that involves the construction of a domestic residence
- Any planning application that would change the current single into multiple occupancy where additional wheeled containers are required
- Any planning application where a change of use application is made from a commercial to domestic residence.
