About the garden waste collection service
Note for existing customers: We have extended the first year's subscription (collection) period for an additional 3 months for those customers who signed up to the garden waste collection service before 1 July 2017. For customers who signed up to the service after 1 July 2017, we have extended the subscription (collection) period by 1 month.
If you are an existing garden waste subscription customer you do not need to sign up for your next year's subscription. Last years subscriptions have been extended as described above and we will contact you when you need to complete the subscription process for 2018/19. If you do subscribe again you will be subscribing for an additional bin not for your existing annual subscription.
New customers: If you are a new customer you can sign up at any point for your annual subscription and a bin will be delivered to your property.
We offer a fortnightly garden waste recycling service. Our garden bin collections scheme requires a yearly subscription.
New customers can subscribe to the garden waste service at any point during the year and will receive 26 collections over 12-month period.
You can choose from a large or small bin, or a combination of bins depending on the amount of garden waste you have. You will need to pay for each bin that you require, but there is no limit on the number of bins you can have. Small bins hold 140 litres of waste. Large bins hold 240 litres of waste. The annual charge for the bins is the same, regardless of size.
- large bin (240 litre) or small bin (140 litre) are both the same price - £62.73
You can pay for as many 240 litre wheelie bins as you want. Sacks are available for residents that currently use bags for their rubbish and recycling - please contact us for details.
Please note that the price is reviewed annually.
After you've signed up and paid
- if you are an existing customer and already have a bin, you can start using your garden waste bin from the date that you made payment
- new customers will receive their new bin within 15 days of making payment. 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
Please note: we have extended the first year's subscription (collection) period for an additional 3 months for those customers who signed up to the garden waste collection service before 1 July 2017. For customers who signed up to the service after 1 July 2017, we have extended the subscription (collection) period by 1 month.
