    So will each subsequent set of Ts need to buy a wheelie bin ? If present Ts buy one then it's their property.

    IMO it should be council. OP ring them up and say that previous occupants have made off with it and offer to pick it up.

    Many moons ago whilst owning a leasehold flat we had to pay for new bins through the service charge one year (we had two big commerial type ones).
    I'm a good tenant with great landlords
    I'm also a living, breathing, fully cooked female.

        Thing is, if OPs council do wheelie bins then it's likely that they will not accept waste in any other bin (ours won't).

          What about the freeholder of the block of flats? As they're the landlord of the leaseholders, would you argue that the freeholder should provide leaseholders with bins?
          ????

          Every leaseholder should have a bin, either supplied by the council,
          or paid for by the leaseholder.

          I am a lease holder, and I have a bin,
          The other flats each have a bin.
          Number of bins = number of flats ( or larger 4 wheeler )

          If you rent out your flat, you include a bin -- simples.

            Poor bl***y LLs, we'll be buying nappies next!!
            Council resp for domestic waste collection, paid for by C Tax payer (normally T). Block of flats may have commercial-sized bins.
            What do other households in area put out on bin day? black bags or wheelies?
            Most Councils use assorted colour coded wheelies and supply first of each type foc & charge for lost/stolen/destroyed replacements.
            What town does OP live in?
            As someone said, wheelies remain the property of the Council, not the LL so have no place on LLs inventory IMO.

              I assume you do without a bin too. Or don't have one big enough for
              all the residents.
              Where do landlords live ?
              and do they store all their rubbish in the kitchen for 2 weeks because
              a bin is deemed none essential ?
              Your house / flat, so you ensure you have a bin, and if you rent it out,
              you ensure the next resident has a bin.

              Landlords forget that they are supplying a home, and storage of
              ROTTING food and waste should be included.
              Nappies are optional, but if you do supply nappies, you need to
              ensure there is a bin too, to put them in, outside.

              But if landlords want rats around their rented property, then
              throw away the bins.
