About the garden waste collection service

What is the Garden waste collection service?

We offer a fortnightly garden waste recycling service where you will receive 26 collections over a 12 month period.  

  • The garden waste collection service is available across the borough for an annual fee of £67.10 per bin (please note: the price is reviewed annually)
  • You can order as many garden waste bins as you need but each bin will be charged at the annual subscription fee
  • Garden waste is collected fortnightly
  • Once you have signed up and paid for your annual subscription you should receive your bin in the next 15 days  
  • Start using your bin as soon as you receive it, your subscription will start on the date of your first collection 
  • You can sign up and pay for the garden waste collection service online. Paying for the service means you agree to the terms and conditions
  • Your garden waste collection day will be confirmed after you have paid for the service
  • The garden waste is collected from your property and taken to be treated to turn into compost
  • Soil conditioner (made from the council's garden waste collections) is also available free of charge to residents at our reuse and recycling centre. Up to four bags at a time can be taken away. Bags and a spade need to be taken to site by residents.
  • We will remove all garden waste bins once your subscription comes to an end.  We would like to thank you for previously subscribing to our garden waste collection and are sorry to see you leave the service.
