Garden waste collection - brown bin

The collection of household garden waste is an optional, paid-for, year-round service. Brown bins are only collected from households that have signed-up to this service.

2018/19 garden waste collection service

You can sign up for the 2018/19 garden waste collection service using the garden waste sign up form.

The standard annual charge for the brown bin collection service is £45.

The service will run from week commencing 21 May 2018 to week commencing 13 May 2019. 

Payments take 3 working days to process (excluding the day you sign up); therefore, if you
subscribe in the days immediately prior to your next scheduled collection date your bin may not be emptied because your address has not been updated on the collection record system.

Please note: if you do not already have a garden waste bin at your property you will need to call 01733 747474 to arrange to have one delivered.

You can subscribe to the service until 28 February 2019, but will be charged the same standard price and your service will end on the same date (i.e. end in the week commencing 13 May 2019). No concession rates are available.

To sign-up to pay by direct debit you must subscribe by midnight on 29 June 2018 (this requires an email address). These payments will be taken on or around the first weeks of July, August and September. After 29 June 2018, the direct debit payment option will no longer be available so please use another means of payment.

If you signed up for recurring direct debit last year (17/18 service) then you will be receiving a letter with more information, if you cancelled your recurring direct debit you will need to sign up again.

There is a one-off charge of £20 for an additional second brown bin, you can't pay for a second brown bin via direct debit.

General information

Collections are fortnightly on the same day as your green bin collection (collections will be monthly in December and January).

You can use the bin collection search tool (see right) to find out what day your brown bin will be collected.

If you do not wish to use the service, you can compost at home or take your garden waste to the Household Recycling Centre in Dogsthorpe.
