Garden Waste 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 dedicated 240 litre wheeled bin.

The scheme operates all year, apart from a fortnight around Christmas and New Year. The collected garden waste is 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.
