Garden waste collection

Sign up to our household garden waste collection service to receive fortnightly collections. You'll be pleased to hear that prices for 2020-21 will remain the same as the previous year.

The garden waste collection service is a convenient and cost-effective way of disposing of your green waste and the wheeled bin makes it easy to move from the garden to the point of collection. It is also great for the environment as your garden waste is turned into compost.

The service runs from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021. Please see below for our price ranges.

You will receive a £5 discount if you subscribe online by credit or debit card before 1 April 2020.

If you wish to pay by annual Direct Debit you will only receive the £5 discount if you sign up by Monday 24 February 2020. Customers already signed up by Direct Debit who wish to keep the service need take no further action.
