Assisted bin lift

Residents who are less able and live alone can apply for help in moving their wheeled rubbish bins for collection.

If you live with someone who is able to move the bin you are not entitled to an assisted lift.

When applying please give:

  • the reason for your application with as much detail as possible
  • details of anyone else living the same household
  • reasons why any other occupants cannot move the bin

Apply for help in moving your bin for collection

You will receive a letter within a few weeks telling you if you are eligible for the help in moving your bins. 

Please keep the bin near the front of the property, or where it is visible to the refuse team so that the bin can be emptied and returned.

Contact Newport City Council for further information.
