Ashington Town Council has responsibility for all matters relating to the provision of litter bins. Northumberland County Council remain responsible for emptying bins across the town.
The Town Council has a programme of replacing ageing litter bins which are beyond repair, as well as providing new litter bins at new locations. We are aware that we are at capacity with litter bins in Ashington, and we are looking at litter bin use more strategically. Often a litter bin is not the answer and behavioural changes need to be encouraged.
Replacement litter bins will be considered in order of priority over the coming years. New litter bin requests will be receieved and considered in consultation with Nortumberland Council Council.
To report a problem with a litter bin, or to make a request for a new litter bin, please Contact Us.
