Garden waste collection service
The new service
A new garden waste collection service will launch in Rugby from Monday 3 April 2017. The existing green bin service will end on 31 March.
- Residents will be able to subscribe and pay for the service from 6 March 2017, by telephone or online. We will accept credit card and debit card payments.
The opt-in service:
- will cost £40 per bin per year. There will be no discounts or exemptions.
- will entitle residents to a fortnightly collection of garden waste, apart from a break for Christmas or in exceptional circumstances such as severe weather.
- will expire in March 2018 when subscriptions can be renewed. There is no discount for part-year subscriptions.
Households that subscribe to the service will be sent a sticker to place underneath the handle on the rear of their bin. This permit will be unique to the address and cannot be used at another address. Our records will show which households have subscribed to the service, and how many bins they have permits for.
Residents who choose not to opt-in to the service will be able to take their garden waste to the tip or compost it at home. We will collect unwanted green bins by arrangement, but residents who later decide to subscribe will be charged for delivery of a new bin.
We will not empty black bins that contain garden waste.
