The garden waste service is a £25 fee bin collection service that runs from October to October.
Current garden waste permits expire on 6 October 2019 and if you want to renew your permit or sign up for one you’ll need to do this by 2pm on 7 August 2019.
The next service year will run from 7 October 2019 to 4 October 2020.
There will only be one more opportunity to sign up to the new service year in January 2020.
We’ll empty brown bins once every two weeks, except over the festive period when there will be no collections between 16 December 2019 and 14 January 2020.
