Join garden waste collection service

Garden waste collection service 

The garden waste collection is an annual subscription service. We are improving the way we manage garden waste subscriptions, and annual renewals will start on 1 April 2023.  In the meantime, a pro rata payment service is in place until 31 March 2023.  We will contact subscribers early in 2023 about how to make an annual renewal payment. The service is subject to the garden waste terms and conditions. .

How much is the subscription fee until 31 March 2023?

The fee varies depending on the subscription month.

Prices between 21 November - 18 December

  • 1 bin service: £16.32 (concessions* £8.16)
  • 2 bin service: £31.00 (concessions* £15.50)
  • 3 bin service: £44.80 (concessions* £222.40)

 *Concessions may be awarded for residents in receipt of housing benefit or council tax support. You will need to provide your housing benefit reference number or council tax account number. If you apply for a concessionary rate and are not on council tax support or housing benefit we will cancel your request and may refer it to our Fraud team.
