    thanks.
    It's a strange sentence. I understand it to mean "Make sure (ensure) that you put a bin liner (the bag that goes in the bin/trash can) in each bin".

    I would not use "receive" (note spelling) in this context.

    If you're writing a notice, how about:

    PLEASE USE BIN LINERS
