Litter bins

We are responsible for installing, maintaining and emptying approximately 2,700 litter bins throughout Coventry.

These bins are emptied on various frequencies depending on footfall and usage and range from daily collections to weekly collections. We continually monitor litter bin fill levels and increase frequencies where necessary.

Report a problem with a litter bin

Please help us by:

  • Always using litter bins when you’re out and about and encourage children to use them.
  • If you cannot find a litter bin, please take your rubbish home with you.
  • Do not put your household rubbish in street litter bins or next to street litter bins, please place your rubbish in your own waste bins for collection.
  • You can take any additional waste to the Recycling and Reuse Centre (the tip).
