Paid-for garden waste collection service

Starting 5 June 2017, we will operate a paid-for service for the collection of garden waste. If you want your garden waste collection to continue uninterrupted, you will need to register and pay the annual subscription by 18 May 2017. We cannot guarantee you will receive your permit in time for the start of the new service, if you register after this date. Don’t worry - if you need more time to decide, you can register at any time in the year.

This is an optional service. If you are undecided or do not wish to register, we will continue to empty your green bin for free if you only recycle food waste in the bin.

If you have a green street caddy instead of a green bin, you do not need to register. We will continue to collect your green caddy for free. Please note that if we collect your green caddy from the back of your property or at a collection point, this will change. From 5 June, you should present your green caddy for collection at the front edge of your property.  

Garden waste collection charges

The annual subscription for one green bin is £35 per year if you register online or £40 if you register by phone on 03330 035865. If you have more than one green bin, each additional green bin you choose to register is charged a flat rate of £25 per year.
