Telford & Wrekin Council recently ran a "suggest a bin scheme" for locals to nominate areas for more rubbish and dog-waste bins in the hope it would lead to less litter, collection of which costs the authority £1.8m a year.
Almost 300 new bins will go down across the borough following the consultation.
Councillor Shaun Davies, cabinet member for neighbourhood services, said: "The very fact we had a significant response from the public demonstrates a clear need for more bins in strategic locations around the borough.
"If this encourages more people to put things in the bin rather than dropping litter then it will improve the environment and save the council a large amount of money. People who throw litter risk fixed penalties and possibly court action."
