Garden Waste Service
What is the Garden Waste Service, and How Does it Work?
The annual subscription service costs £40 per year and one subscription provides four generous, reusable sacks which are collected every fortnight on the same day of the week as your other waste collections. Subscriptions run until 31 March each year.
Once your garden waste sacks have been delivered, you simply need to fill them and leave them at the usual point on your next scheduled collection day. We have technology inside our vehicles which tells the operators which properties have subscribed to the scheme, so no permit is required - just use the supplied green sacks.
Each subscription is for 4 sacks. For new subscribers who have not used the service before, we aim to deliver your sacks within 10 working days.
An annual cost of £40 will apply for fortnightly collections running until 31 March each year, excluding 2 weeks in December when the service is closed for Christmas.
What can I put in my garden waste sack?
No, thank you!
