Council are offering free wheelie bin lid clips upon request for properties exposed to high winds. These clips are designed to keep the lid of your wheelie bin sealed and secure in adverse weather conditions. This helps prevent littering and pollution when bins are tipped over, keeping your garden and the environment clean and green.

There are two types of clips. One lighter release clip for 80L bins and the regular clip for 240L bins.

Installation instructionsWheelie bin clip

1. Place the clip under the bin lid handle so the hook is facing down.

2. Bring the rounded end of the clip across the top of the bin lid handle and thread the hook through.

3. Pull the clip down so the hook catches the side of the bin.
