Garden waste collection
Garden waste collection is an opt-in chargeable service costing £40 per bin per calendar year regardless of when you subscribe during the year. This charge is not included or added to your council tax bill. Residents have a choice to use the service or make alternative arrangements such as composting at home or taking their waste to the nearest recycling centre.
If you are in receipt of full council tax reduction at the point of applying for your annual permit, you are entitled to 25 per cent (£10) reduction on the cost of one garden waste bin permit.
The service will provide fortnightly collections over 40 weeks of the year with a suspension outside of growing season of 12 weeks (December to February). This equates to £2 per collection. Garden waste bins will not be emptied without a valid subscription and displayed permit. Collections in 2023 will take place between Monday 27 February 2023 and Friday 1 December 2023. Please check your collection calendar to confirm when your garden waste is collected.
