Garden waste service

The service will run from 21 February to 25 November 2022. Your subscription includes one additional collection in January 2023 for Christmas trees and garden waste bins. If you require this January collection you will need to pre-book this online during December. Only those subscribers who have pre-booked will receive a collection.

The cost for the garden waste collection service is £25 for the first bin and £17 for each extra bin. 

Please read the garden waste terms and conditions before paying.

New subscribers can subscribe online in the same way as existing subscribers.


What happens after you subscribe?

After you've paid, you'll receive a confirmation letter and a licence sticker for each bin. Contact us if you don't receive your licence sticker within 21 days of making your payment. 

The sticker confirms that you have paid for one green garden bin to be emptied during the period stated on the sticker. It will also confirm the day your garden bin will be emptied. The old sticker should be removed and the new sticker must be stuck to your green garden bin in order for it to be emptied. If you subscribe to more than one bin, you will receive a separate sticker for each bin.

Sticker instructions

  • The sticker should be stuck to your green garden bin as soon as you receive it
  • Stick it on the back of your bin (the handle side)
  • The surface of the bin must be clean and dry before applying the sticker
