Paid-for garden waste collection service

We operate a paid-for service for the collection of garden waste. This is an optional service and you can register at any time for a fixed annual fee (£35 online or £40 by phone).

If you do not wish to register, we will not collect your garden waste but will continue to collect all your food waste from your green bin.

If you have a green caddy instead of a green bin, you do not need to register. We will continue to collect your green caddy for your food and garden waste.

2017/18 Permit

The current 2017/18 permit expires on 4 June 2018 and is no longer available to purchase.

New 2018/19 Permit

The new 2018/19 permit is valid from 4 June 2018 and will expire on 2 June 2019. If you want your garden waste collection to continue uninterrupted, you will need to register and pay the annual subscription by 18 May 2018. If you register after this date we cannot guarantee you will receive your permit in time for the start of the new service. Don’t worry - if you need more time to decide, you can register at any time in the year.

The annual subscription for one permit is
