Garden waste collection

From 1 October you can take advantage of the Council’s garden waste collection from your home for just £30.

Garden waste will be collected fortnightly over the six months until the end of March 2018 (apart from two weeks over the Christmas/New Year period).

If you receive Council Tax Reduction, you qualify for a 50% reduction so will pay just £15. 
Sign up for the reduced-price service.

Following subscription you must wait 10 working days, and then put out your garden waste on the next scheduled collection date following that.

Look up your garden waste collection day - for subscribers to the service only.

Last year, more than 16,000 Hounslow households signed up to garden waste collections.

We've listened to your feedback on last year's service and made improvements for this year. The garden waste collection service will now be run by Recycle 360, the company wholly owned by Hounslow Council.
