Ashington Town Council has responsibility of all matters relating to the provision of new litter bins in the town. 

Please note Northumberland County Council retains responsibility for emptying the bins across the town.

The Town Council has a programme of replacing ageing litter bins which are beyond repair as well as providing litter bins at new locations. The Town Council's Neighbourhood Services Officer installs bins and carries out repairs and maintenance where required. 

Requests for new or replacement litter bins will be met in order of priority and in areas where residents identify litter as a problem.   

To report an issue with any of the litter bins in Ashington please call 01670 620 533 / 624 520 or email
