Subscribe to the service

What happens after I renew or subscribe?

  • You will get a pack in the post by 5 March 2018 (if you subscribe before 31 January 2018) which will include:
    • a letter with your bin collection dates on the reverse
    • terms and conditions
    • a sticker for your green bin(s) - use a permanent marker to put your address on the sticker, then place the sticker on the body of your green bin, below the handle (replacing the previous year's sticker)
  • Your details will be added to a list so the collection crew knows that you have subscribed to the service.
  • You will continue to use your existing green bin. If you do not have a green bin, you will need to buy a new one. You can order a new bin online.

Collection dates

Your green bin will be collected fortnightly from March 2018 to November 2018. 

Collections will start from 19 March 2018. You will get your bin collection dates in the post with your pack, and collection dates will be available online before the collections start, at bin collection dates.

If you subscribe by 28 February 2018, you will get all 17 collections in 2018.

You can still subscribe to the service at any point after this and we will arrange for your collections to start as soon as possible. You'll receive the remaining collections before the scheme ends for the year in November.

Not sure of your reference number?

If you provided an email address when you subscribed, we can remind you of your garden waste subscription(s) information via email.

On your collection day

On your collection day, please make sure your bin is outside by 7.30am (where the edge of your property meets the footpath / road) and returned to your property on the same day.

What to put in your green bin 

See What to put in your green bin.

Additional bins

You can have as many green bins as you need.

You will need to pay £30 per year for each bin collection. 

You will also need to buy your additional bin(s). You can order a new bin online.

Help moving your bin

If you already get help to put your bin out, this will automatically continue.

If you are physically unable to put your bin out for collection and there is nobody you can call on to help, you can request help to pull your bin out.
