We offer a garden waste service, supplying you with a brown garden waste bin which will be collected every two weeks (except over Christmas). All material collected is locally composted.
The cost is £47.50 a year for each brown bin paid by Direct Debit. For other payment methods, the yearly cost is £53 for each brown bin.
Our garden waste service has become so popular that we have redesigned the routes to enable us to accept new customers onto the scheme. To allow for this work to take place, delivery of new bins will be suspended until 7 January 2019. You can register your interest for a garden waste bin and we will contact you when orders for the service reopen.
When will your brown garden waste bin be collected?
The day we empty your brown bin may have changed, you can find out more about the changes here. All garden waste customers have been sent a letter and calendar letting you know your collection day.
