Garden waste service

Arrange a garden waste collection and save a trip to the tip!
 

The garden waste collection service operates a sticker subscription system which enables our crews to easily identify which bins are eligible for collection. You can subscribe to the garden waste collection service at any point in the calendar year via MyAccount. There is a fixed subscription cost which will cover your service until December of that year.
Please note: We do not pro-rata the cost of the service depending on the month you join. If you sign up to the garden waste collection service in October/November, your annual service will not start until January of the following year. 

Your service (and sticker) will be automatically renewed every January, unless you wish to cancel it. An invoice for the following year's service will be sent in November, allowing all garden waste customers to renew and pay for their subscription by January, ready for the service to begin again.

Any brown garden waste bins not clearly displaying the sticker will not be emptied.

New customers subscribing to the garden waste collection service from October 2019 will be added to the service ready for the 2020 calendar year. This means any payment made will be considered payment for the 2020 garden waste service and your collections will not begin until the service recommences at the end of January/beginning of February 2020. Your brown garden waste bin will be delivered to your property with the 2020 calendar year's subscription sticker already affixed. You will also receive a helpful information pack to welcome you to the service.

How does the service work?

Our annual garden waste service includes:

  • providing a large brown wheeled bin to your property
  • providing a subscription sticker for the calendar year to be affixed to your bin (as per the instructions on the reverse of the sticker) – this enables our crews to easily identify which bins are eligible for collection
  • fortnightly collections, scheduled on the same day as either your blue-lidded recycling bin or green rubbish bin, to take place between February and November
  • Automatic renewal of your service at the end of the calendar year.

Please note, the service is suspended throughout December and January.

How much does the garden waste service cost?

The annual cost of the garden waste collection service is £45. This is a fixed subscription cost which will cover your service until the end of the calendar year. 

Please note: We do not pro-rata the cost of the service depending on the month you join. If you sign up to the garden waste collection service in October/November, your annual service will not start until January of the following year.
