You can now buy a subscription on our website for the 2023 Garden Waste Subscription Service.
The annual charge for the garden waste collection service is £45 per green-lidded bin. You need to sign up to the new paid subscription service if you would like to have your garden waste collected. If you regularly create more waste than you can
fit in your green-lidded bin, you can also request an additional green-lidded bin for a one-off charge of £25, plus the annual subscription charge of £45 per bin.
Garden waste collections will restart from the fortnight beginning 27 February 2023 and continue until late November/early December 2023. You can find out your next green-lidded bin collection date using our online postcode checking tool. You can also download your waste collection calendar from this page, too.
Green-lidded bins are for organic garden waste only, such as:
- grass/hedge cuttings
- twigs/small branches
- flowers (including cut flowers that are kept inside the house)
- 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. If this occurs, your green-lidded bin may not be collected on that occasion.
For more information on subscribing to the 2023 Garden Waste Subscription Service, or to purchase additional green-lidded bins, visit www.dacorum.gov.uk/garden-waste.
If you decide not to sign up to the paid service, there are many ways you can still recycle your garden waste. You can compost it in a home composting bin to turn it into valuable and nutrient-rich food for your garden, or you can take it to your local recycling centre.
