Additional garden waste subscription scheme

Update on additional green bin collections

See an update about garden waste collections; if we haven't collected your green bins on your usual day, leave it out and we'll return to empty it as soon as possible.

If you've subscribed and paid for additional green bins to be emptied:

  • we will collect all additional bins during the current season
  • we'll honour your subscription if it expired during coronavirus
  • you won't need to pay for the remainder of the current season if your renewal is due
  • we won't be issuing a refunds
  • you won't get a subscription renewal reminder

Subscribe for additional garden waste collections

Under normal circumstances you can subscribe to have additional garden waste bins emptied. However, we're not currently accepting new garden waste scheme subscriptions due to limitations on service, as a result of working within measures that minimise the spread of coronavirus.

When the ability to subscribe reopens, we'll calculate the cost per extra bin:

  • 1 bin: emptied free
  • 2 bins: the first bin is free, the second bin is £39.00 per year
  • 3 bins: the first bin is free, the 2 additional bins are £39.00 each per year (£78.00 total) and so on

Missed garden waste collections

If your collection has been missed, check our waste collection updates for details of any known service issues.

  • send you any further invoices
