Garden waste

Garden waste collection

We have introduced an annual charge for garden waste collections. If you want us to collection your garden waste, please sign up using the link below.

How it works

You will receive a 240 litre brown wheelie bin when you subscribe. You can also opt to use two 90 litre sacks if this is more convenient for you to handle and store.

You will receive fortnightly collections of garden waste for a year, starting from 4 April. You can also opt to share the service with a neighbour. Talk to your neighbour about sharing the bin and how you will split the cost. Only one of you should apply.  

What it costs

The service costs £50 for a fixed year period (4 April to 31 March 2017). Households receiving council tax support pay £25 per year.

Residents who sign up after 1 October will pay £30, for the period until 31 March, or £15 if in receipt of council tax support.

Discounts and offers

  • If you receive council tax support, provide your claim reference number to receive a 50 per cent discount. This can be found on any letter sent to you from the benefits department.

  • Apply for a FREE composter, worth around £20, and compost some of your garden waste and food waste at home. This limited offer is on a first come, first served basis. To request your free composter visit www.getcomposting.com or call 0844 571 4444.

Alternative services

You can take your garden waste free of charge to Space Waye Reuse and Recycle Centre. You can bring a van in for free as long as it has not been used before and you show proof of identify and a copy of your council tax bill.
