Garden Waste Subscription Service

Our garden waste collection is changing to an opt-in paid subscription service. From 2023, if you wish to continue receiving fortnightly green-lidded bin collections you will need to subscribe and pay an annual fee.

How and when can I subscribe?

Registration for subscriptions will be available from January 2023.

This page will be updated in early January with the subscription link and more information on how to subscribe to the Garden Waste Subscription Service.

How much will it cost?

The annual subscription charge will be £45 per wheeled bin. All additional green-lidded bins will be charged at the same rate. You will need to sign up to the new paid subscription service to continue to have your garden waste collected.

When can I purchase a subscription?

Once the registrations open in January you will be able to purchase a garden waste subscription at any point in the year. However, the rate of £45 will remain the same. Therefore, it is recommended buying the subscription at the beginning of the year to ensure the best value for money.  

Will collections continue as normal?

Garden waste collections will continue to be paused over the winter months when less garden waste is produced. Collections will begin again as listed in your 2023 collection calendar - find out when your next collection is.

What other options do I have?

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 and turn it into valuable and nutrient-rich food for your garden, or take it to your local recycling centre.
