Due to the impact Covid-19 has had on our waste collection workforce, please note we will not be taking on any new subscriptions to our garden waste service until further notice.
This is to ensure we can prioritise the waste and recycling collections service.
Please note we will still be collecting current subscriber’s garden waste until further notice.
The charge to renew your subscription to the garden waste collection service will be £65 for each bin.
You can renew online or change to pay by direct debit, which will automatically renew your subscription each year.
Direct debits will be processed within 30 days.
To ensure a problem free collection service please ensure your bin is presented at your property boundary by 6am on your collection day.
Do not overfill your bin or leave additional garden waste next to the bin as this will not be collected.

Where your garden waste goes
Your garden waste is collected separately to your other household waste and recycling and is used to produce compost for the horticulture industry.
Do you live down a road or lane with limited access?
Limited access to a few roads or lanes in the borough may mean our contractor cannot collect from some addresses so please do check with us first if you think this might be the case where you live.
For more information, please see garden waste service FAQs.
