The cost is £30.00 for the half year service, or £15.00 for residents in receipt of Council Tax Reduction (Support). Please note: Council Tax Reduction (Support) is a means-tested council tax discount and refers to residents in receipt of income-based Council Tax Reduction (single person occupancy discount or disability band relief does not apply). Officers will check for eligibility.

The half year collection is only available for payment via debit or credit card (excluding American Express). Sign up for half year service will close on 30 November 2020. New subscribers will be provided with a 240-litre brown wheeled bin or two heavy duty 90 litre sacks, depending on their available storage space.

When you subscribe, your collection day will be the same day of the week as your refuse collection, but on alternate weeks to your refuse collection. The full year service will operate once again from 1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022.

It will take approximately 10 days to deliver your garden waste bin or recycling sack. Following delivery of your new Garden Waste bin(s) or sacks, you must wait until your next scheduled collection for the Garden Waste to be collected.

Councillor Guy Lambert, Cabinet Member for Highways, Recycling and Companies said:

“We have been delighted at how enthusiastic our residents have been for recycling and Hounslow council is committed to making recycling as easy as possible for all residents.

“The half year garden waste collection service offers residents a flexible and affordable alternative, for residents who missed the annual sign up, to take advantage of this service until March next year.

“All garden waste collected from across the borough is turned into compost which can then be reused - benefitting the environment. Helping us towards a Cleaner Greener Hounslow, together.”

The Garden Waste collection service provided by Recycle 360, wholly owned by Hounslow Council.
