Garden Waste collection
You can opt-in to have your garden waste collected by subscribing to the Garden Waste Subscription service.
Subscriptions run from 1st April to 31st March every year. Subscriptions for the year 2022-2023 are now closed. You can sign up to subscription year 2023-2024 from 1st February 2023.
If you have not signed up to Direct Debit, your collections will stop from 31st March, unless you renew your subscription.
To renew your subscription to our Garden Waste Service for the year 2023 to 2024, you can sign up by Direct Debit.
Our Garden Waste Subscription Service is £25 per year, per bin. The year runs from 1 April to 31 March.
A brown bin is included for free if you do not already have one at your address.
How to subscribe to Garden Waste Service
Subscriptions for 2022 to 2023 have now closed.
To subscribe to our Garden Waste Service for the year 2023 to 2024, you can sign up by Direct Debit.
If you do not have an existing Garden Waste Service or you do not want to pay via Direct Debit, you can sign up to the year 2023 to 2024 from 1st February 2023.
Once you have successfully subscribed, you will receive a sticker in the post. The sticker must be displayed on the back of the bin, under the handle. Your bin will not be collected unless it has the sticker displayed.
It can take up to 12 working days for your bin sticker to arrive. If you have not received your sticker after 12 working days, you can contact the Gateway Team on 01772 625 625.
If you do not wish to re-subscribe to the Garden Waste Service you will no longer get a brown bin collection when the year is over (31 March 2023). You can either compost the garden waste at home or dispose of it at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre for free.
Subscribe by Direct Debit
So you don't need to re-register for your subscription every year, we offer an optional yearly Direct Debit service when you subscribe online.
This means that payment for each year's subscription will be paid directly to the council without you having to do anything more.
If you opt for this service, payment for 2023 to 2024 will be taken up front and payment for each year afterwards will be taken by Direct Debit on the 1 February.
You will receive a new sticker in the post each year once your year's Direct Debit payment has been made.
Further terms and conditions and details about the Direct Debit Guarantee are displayed during the subscription process.
All bins are subject to our container charging policy if lost, stolen or damaged beyond repair.
More than one subscription
If you want more than one subscription, but only have one bin at present, we will provide an additional bin for free. Note: this must be requested during the subscription process.
