Changes to our garden waste service

Following consultation, charges for the garden waste service are being reviewed. A proposed annual fee will help support a move towards composting and minimising garden waste which will help deliver important climate change priorities.

If you currently receive a garden waste service from us, your collections will continue as normal. We will let you know about any changes before they are introduced.

Our current service

We only collect garden waste from properties that have registered for our garden waste service.

At the moment, the cost to register for the service is a one-off fee of £25 per bin, and up to two bins can be registered. There’s no change to the frequency of collections.

To register for a garden waste bin, sign in to MyAccount below.

Before you register, make sure you have read the terms and conditions of our garden waste service.

There are two bin sizes to choose from:

  • 180 litre (same as standard black rubbish bin)
  • 240 litre

The one-off registration fee of £25 per bin is the same regardless of the size you choose and each property can have up to two bins registered. If you produce more waste than will fit into two bins you can dispose of it at one of our recycling centres.

Registration covers your property, so bins will stay with the property if you move. If you move to an unregistered property, you will have to register for the service to receive a garden waste collection.

Garden waste bags

Garden waste bags are available by exception only and restricted to those properties that are currently on the grey sack service for refuse (rubbish). All other properties will receive bins once registered.

Each registration covers three garden waste bags, which is equivalent to one bin. In line with the bin service you may make up to two registrations, which would give you an entitlement for up to six bags. Your first bags will be provided as part of your registration, but you will have to purchase any future replacements.
