WHEELIE bins will be rolled out into every household in the borough this summer.
Households will receive 50,000 grey 140-litre bins for non-recyclable waste and 41,000 green 140-litre bins.
Another 1,750 grey 240-litre bins will be delivered to larger properties with five or more family members.
The bins will be ordered through either of two organisations - Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation or Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation - once a mini competition will have secured the best value deal.

A pilot scheme was carried out between June and December 2008 in which 8,500 properties in the borough already received their wheelie bins.
Half of those responded to a survey out of which 91 per cent said they were in favour of the new bins.

Council bosses agreed to invest over �2.11m to roll out the scheme in the remaining households.
Some areas, where residents do not have space for wheelie bins, will be excluded from the scheme, while residents who cannot handle the bins due to physical problems can make alternative arrangements.
The bins will be delivered in five phases.
The first one is due in April 11 and the last one is due to end on August 21.
