Additional garden waste subscription scheme

Garden waste collections resuming

Garden waste collections resumed from Monday 18 May. Check your next scheduled collection date on your waste collection calendar.

Note: We're expecting delays to garden waste collections due to the backlog which built up whilst the service was suspended - as a result, garden waste collections may take us longer than usual.

If we don't get to your green bin on your scheduled collection day, leave it out and we'll return to empty it as soon as possible.

You can subscribe to have additional garden waste bins emptied.

We 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

Additional garden bin scheme subscriptions

We're not currently accepting new garden waste scheme subscriptions, due to limitations on service as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

We'll still collect additional green bins during the current season, if you have subscribed in previous years.

Additional garden bin scheme renewals

We're not currently issuing garden waste scheme renewal reminders. If your renewal is due you will not need to pay for the remainder of the current season.

We'll update this page with advice about renewing your subscription when we reopen the subscription scheme.

Cancel your additional garden bin subscription

When we've received your notification to cancel, we won't:

  • send you any further invoices
  • empty your extra green bin(s)
