Garden waste

The garden waste service is a £25 fee bin collection service that runs from October to October.  If you signed up in February, you should recieve your permit in 6 to 8 weeks.

Find out what you can put in your garden waste bin.

If you have signed up for garden waste you will need to renew your permit again in the summer to continue receiving collections after October. If you choose to renew your permit in the summer then it will be valid from October 2019 to October 2020.
