More Information on the Service...

  • It saves the time of loading your car and taking it to the household recycling centre.
  • It saves money on fuel and cleaning up your car afterwards.
  • The garden waste is composted into a usable soil conditioner and avoids garden waste being sent to landfill, where it would rot and produce a toxic gas called methane, which contributes to climate change.
  • The compost is then available for purchase to improve your garden.
  • Garden Waste is not allowed in either your regular black bin or your green recycling bin, if it is found in either of these, your bin will not be collected.
  • The service costs just £46.50 per year per brown bin
  • Payable by annual Direct Debit only.
  • For your subscription fee, you will receive 20 collections a year. That works out at £2.32 per collection.
  • There is also a one-off joining fee of £20 per brown wheelie bin.
  • Keep an eye out for special offers throughout the year.
  • Collections run fortnightly from March until the end of November/beginning of December.
  • Your subscription fee pays for the 9 months of service, spread over a 12 month period and you can join at any point during the year.
  • Your subscription will be automatically renewed, unless you cancel.
  • Your annual fee is collected on your anniversary of joining the service.
  • Grass cuttings
  • Hedge and shrub clippings
  • Weeds
  • Cut flowers
  • Leaves
  • Twigs and bark
  • Windfall fruit

We can't collect tree stumps or large branches (over 10cm/4in in diameter)

Some properties may not be eligible for this service. These include (but are not limited to):

  • If your property is serviced by a smaller waste collection vehicle
  • If your property doesn't currently receive a wheeled bin collection
  • Some outlying rural areas

We would advise that you contact the team for further advice if you think these restrictions may apply to you.

  • If your bin has not been emptied and there is a tag on your bin to say there was contaminated waste in the bin, there is no need to contact us. Please remove the contamination and present your bin on your next collection day.  The most common items of contamination are plastic bags and plant pots. We will not return to collect bins that have not been emptied because of contamination.

Also, please do not contact us for a missed bin if:

  • It is before 4.30pm.
  • There was obstruction or access problem for the collection vehicle to your property or bin.

If you do need to contact us, you can do that here.

Please report any damage to your bins here.
