Garden Waste Service

Please note: New subscribers to the Garden Waste Service should be aware that due to national supply issues with wheeled bins we are not able to deliver bins to new garden waste collection customers at the moment. We expect the issue to be resolved by mid September. The start date for new subscriptions, placed before bins are available, will be adjusted to when bins have been delivered not from the date you register for the service.


For £55.00 a year, you can sign up or renew to our Garden Waste Service.  Residents that join our service are provided with a brown-lidded bin.

The scheme operates all year, apart from the fortnight around Christmas and New Year. The garden waste will then be taken to a local composting facility.

Save time and pay by Direct Debit – you can now take the hassle out of paying for the Garden Waste Service by paying by Direct Debit. Quick, easy and safe, paying by Direct Debit keeps you in control. To proceed to set up your Direct Debit, please follow the instructions on the form. Please note, you will need to create an online account to do this.

Once payment has been received we will send you confirmation of your registration and, if required, arrange delivery of your garden waste bin.

Please read the terms and conditions of the Garden Waste Scheme.
