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 for a fixed annual fee.

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 for free.

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 free.
