The new garden waste collection service starts in April 2017
A new, year-round service starts from 3 April 2017. If you sign up and pay, you'll get garden waste collections throughout the year. It doesn't matter when you sign up, your subscription is for one year of collections.
You can choose a large bin or a small bin, or a combination of bins depending on the amount of garden waste you have. Small bins hold 140 litres of waste. Large bins hold 240 litres of waste.
New and existing customers can sign up and pay from late February 2017.
For the service starting April 2017:
- large bin (240 litre) or small bin (140 litre) are both the same price - £61.50
- this pays for a 12 month service as compared to the 9 months offered in 2016
After you've signed up and paid
If you are an existing customer and already have a bin, you can use this service from 3 April 2017.
New customers who signed up by 31 March 2017 will receive their new garden waste bin by the end of May 2017.
Once you have received the bin, you can start filling it with your garden waste.
Your annual subscription will start on the date of your first collection and you will receive 26 collections.
Starting your collections from 3 April 2017
Just place your garden waste wheelie bins out with your normal fortnightly brown rubbish bin collection.
