Garden waste collection service
The council offers an opt-in garden waste collection service every fortnight for residents who want one.
Subscriptions for the 2020/21 subscription year have now closed. We will open the 2021/22 subscriptions shortly.
How the service works
The fortnightly service costs £40 per bin for the year, running from April to March apart from a short break at Christmas and New Year. Subscriptions will be for the 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021 subscription period. You can opt-in at any time, but there are no discounts for part-year subscriptions.
You can pay by credit or debit card at any time of the day, using our secure website. Once you have signed up, allow up to two weeks for us to send your bin sticker and arrange to empty your bin.
When you opt-in you will receive a bin sticker, which you will need to stick to the body of your bin at the rear, below the handle. This sticker will be unique to you, and will match our records. We only empty green garden waste bins that display a sticker.
Once we have sent your bin sticker you can start using it straight away.
Garden waste collection rounds
Your garden waste bin may be emptied on a different day of the week to your black rubbish and blue-lid recycling bins. You may need to check your next bin day.
