Sign up for our extra green bin service

If you regularly create more garden waste than you can fit in your green bin, then why not sign up to our Additional Garden Waste Subscription Service?

The service gives you the opportunity to buy additional 240-litre green-lidded bins for £25 each and have them collected on your normal garden waste collection day for a seasonal subscription fee of £55.

For more information or to subscribe, go to our Additional Garden Waste Subscription Service page.

Garden waste collections will start again from the fortnight beginning Monday 1 March and continue through to the end of November/beginning of December.

You can find out when your next green-lidded bin collection is using our online postcode checker. From here, you can also download your Waste Collection Calendar if you have not already done so.

The regular, free of charge garden waste service currently provided to households will remain unchanged - this additional service is simply an optional extra if required.

Green-lidded bins are for organic garden waste only, such as:

  • grass/hedge cuttings
  • leaves
  • twigs/small branches
  • flowers (including cut flowers that are kept inside the house)
  • prunings
  • weeds
  • small animal bedding made from straw, hay or woodchips (but not shredded paper)

Please note: all cardboard should be recycled in your blue-lidded bin and all food waste should go into your food waste caddies. Materials such as treated wood, hardcore and turf should be taken to your local recycling centre.

No plastic, cardboard, food waste, pet faeces or other waste should ever go in your green-lidded bin.
