Garden waste roadshows

If you would like some more information on this service then visit our roadshow trailer at upcoming local events.

New subscribers

You can choose to have one or more 240 litre bins for your fortnightly garden waste collection service. Once subscribed, we will send you more details of your collection dates and your bin will be delivered to you.

How much you pay

The new service costs £40 for the first year (plus a one off charge of £10 for the bin), then £40 in subsequent years.

Where your garden waste goes

Your garden waste will be collected separately to your other household waste and recycling and will be used to produce compost for the horticulture industry.

Sign up

You can make a one-off annual payment or sign up with direct debit, which will automatically renew your subscription each year.

We have had a huge response to the service, introduced in April 2014, and are now waiting for a further supply of brown bins.  Please be aware that  for new subscribers, the collection service will begin approximately six weeks after  signing up.

Do you live down a road or lane with limited access?

Please be advised that limited access to a few roads or lanes in the Borough may mean our contractor is unable to collect from some addresses so please do check with us first if you think this might be the case where you live.
