Subscription and charge

  • The cost to subscribe to the green waste collection service is £30 per bin

  • Payment can be made online using a debit/credit card. If you do not have a debit/credit card and wish to make a cash payment please contact Customer Services to book an appointment to do so. Please note we no longer accept cheque payments

  • The new green waste subscription service is effective from 1 April 2018

  • To avoid any missed green bin collections you must subscribe by 15 March 2018

  • The annual charge is based on 25 collections which equates to just £1.20 per collection, the service is suspended for two weeks over the Christmas and New Year period

  • If you choose to subscribe to the service at any other time through the year the annual charge will remain the same

  • If subscribing after 15 March 2018 please allow two weeks from subscription date before your first green waste collection

  • If you only produce small amounts of garden waste you may wish to consider sharing a green bin with a neighbour as this would halve the cost. However one of you must take responsibility to subscribe to the service

    Once subscribed

  • You will receive an email confirming your payment and subscription

  • A sticker will be issued during the last 2 weeks of March if you subscribe by 15 March 2018 (or within 2 weeks if you subscribe after this date) and must be attached to each subscribed bin as directed

  • Collections will continue on a fortnightly basis. Please present the green bin at the edge of your property by 7.30am on your scheduled collection day

  • Only green bins labelled with an authorised subscription sticker will be collected. Any bins that are presented for collection without a sticker or with an unauthorised sticker will not be emptied
