Fortnightly garden waste collection
You can opt in for a chargeable, fortnightly, garden waste collection service.
The 2020 to 2021 garden waste scheme runs from 1 April 2020 to 30 April 2021. The scheme usually runs for 12 months but has been extended by one month for the 2020 to 2021 year only due to Covid-19.
We provide a 240 litre brown wheelie bin. Each year a different coloured sticker is displayed to show you have paid for the current collection year.
Your bin will only be emptied if you are displaying the current year’s sticker.
The last date an order can be placed is the 31 December.
Opt in to garden waste collection service
You can opt in to order garden waste collection if you are:
- An existing customer who wants to take the service out for a further year
- A new customer
Existing customers will receive a sticker within 10 working days.
Any bins ordered will be delivered within 15 working days, with the sticker already attached.
The annual cost of the service is £60. If you opt in later in the year the cost will be a pro-rata amount depending on when you opt in, as follows:
- 1 April to 30 June - price: £60
- 1 July to 30 September - price: £45
- 1 October to 31 December - price: £30
We recommend that anyone who has yet to join the service considers whether it is better to wait until the next price drop point to opt-in, when the price for the service drops to £45.

If your garden waste bin is damaged or has gone missing then you can report this and request a replacement bin.
