Residents with a garden waste bin: join our scheme

Request the garden waste service

Due to significant financial pressures, the council introduced a charge for the garden waste service (the brown lidded wheeled bin) in April 2016. This means that if you use the service, you will contribute towards its cost.

What does it cost?

The cost is £24 per garden waste bin per year which covers collections between 1 April and 31 March. If you pay by credit card, there will be a 2.2% surcharge.

Please allow 10 working days for delivery of the sticker. The deadline for receiving your sticker by 1 April was 17 March 2017.

We will only be able to empty bins displaying the correct sticker and we won’t be returning for bins which don't display the right sticker. Please ensure you allow enough time (to receive your sticker) between making your payment and presenting your bin on your collection day.

Please note, the year runs from the 1 April until 31 March only.

Sign up and pay for the service

Got more than one garden waste bin? You can pay for up to three at a time. If you need to pay for more than three bins, please use our contact form. Please include your name, address and phone number.

We will provide you with a sticker in March to place on each bin you order. The service is renewed annually. Please contact us if you haven't received your sticker by mid-March 2017.

Then, simply continue to present your bin in the same way and on the same day – the collection crews will only empty the bins displaying the correct sticker.

Subscribe as soon as you can to avoid any interruption in your garden waste collections.

Why choose this service?

This service is convenient and easy to use, saves you time travelling to the tip. It costs only £2 per month (96p per collection). Any bin(s) at your property that have not been paid for will not be emptied.

Signing up if you don't have a debit or credit card

Please use our contact form and request an invoice. You will then need to pay the invoice at a paypoint outlet or at a post office. Unfortunately we cannot take cash payments at the council offices.
