Garden waste service

With our garden waste service you can order one or more 240-litre wheeled bins to put your garden waste into.

Garden waste is collected every other week (except two weeks over Christmas) and disposed of for a fee of £45 a year per bin.

You sign up to the service with an annual contract and we send contract renewal letters and emails with your contract details (reference number and charges) from the first Monday in March, over a six week period, each year.
