Important information

The service will run from 24 February to 27 November 2020, with one additional collection in January 2021 for Christmas trees and garden waste. You will need to book your Christmas collection separately online between 21 December 2020 and 3 January 2021. Only those customers who have pre booked will receive this one off Christmas collection.

You can join the scheme at any time between February and October. Please note that there maybe changes to your collection day for garden waste this year.

The cost for the garden waste collection service is £25 for the first bin and £17 for each additional bin.

Please read the terms and conditions before paying.

New subscribers can subscribe online in the same way as existing subscribers.

What happens next?

After you've paid, you'll receive a confirmation letter and a licence sticker for each bin within 21 days. The old sticker should be removed and the new sticker should be fixed to your garden bin. Contact us on 01748 829100 if you don't receive it.

The sticker confirms that you have paid for one green garden bin to be emptied during the period stated on the sticker. This sticker must be affixed to your green garden bin in order for it to be emptied. Your sticker will also confirm your collection day.

Sticker instructions

  • The sticker should be affixed to your green garden bin as soon as you receive it
  • Stick it on the back of your bin (the handle side)
  • The surface of the bin must be clean and dry before applying the sticker
