THE deadline is looming to get a free delivery for a blue or brown recycling bin from the council.


The council has already taken 29,000 orders for new or bigger bins from residents - and there are 2,500 scheduled for delivery over the next three weeks.


The last orders for free deliveries of blue or brown bins will be taken on Thursday 31July.

Still waiting for an order put in since January. 6 months....right farce.

Still waiting, ordered my bigger bins as soon as leaflet came out, fed up of hearing that Barnsley Council can't cope with the backlog. Why change something if they can't actually cope with the changes themselves? Collections missed and bins over flowing.....Well Done Barnsley Council

How do I order one

Posted by Scott I Sun 27th Jul 2014 at 2:45pm

It'd be ok if you delivered them! I ordered 3 new bins on 10th February and have been in touch with waste management at the council and the manager, Graham Smith. I was promised by Graham, only after complaining that I've been waiting nearly 24 weeks to have them delivered 'tomorrow' his email said. That was 2 weeks ago and still have not got them! And they wonder why people fly tip! Waste management?? Waste of space!!

I was probably one of the first to order a blue and a brown bin in January , as I'd never had one .The rest of the street had theirs delivered months ago , I'm still waiting ! ? I put all my cardboard in the grey bin , as when you put it in sacks .. they leave rubbish all over the street ! New re-cycling ? Its a total disaster !

Posted by J COLES I Sun 27th Jul 2014 at 3:24pm

I ordered a large brown bin in February and am still waiting , I got my large blue one last month, why couldn't they deliver them both at same time
