The garden waste club

Membership of the club is the easy way of disposing of your garden waste on a fortnightly basis through kerbside collections of a brown wheelie bin.

It is hassle-free, meaning no more trips to the recycling centre and no need to mess up the boot of your car.

Your membership runs from April to March and costs £48 (per bin that needs to be emptied) which is less than a pound a week!

From 1 September the cost of a subscription to the garden waste club will be reduced to £24 offering residents a 50% saving. Please note that all subscriptions will expire on 31 March 2020.

The really important bits of garden waste club terms and conditions

Sticker licences are valid from 1 April to 31 March. Without an official sticker licence your bin will not be collected.

Your bin needs to be out by 7am on your allocated day of collection.

  • Bins remain council property. However, you are responsible for the bin while you are a member of the garden waste club

  • Payment does not guarantee you a specific number of collections. We do not collect in the two weeks over Christmas and New Year

  • You are responsible for filling your bin appropriately. We won’t empty bins where guidelines have not been followed. To see what can and can’t go in your bin visit the brown garden waste bin page

  • Your sticker licence will arrive, with an abridged version of the T&C’s, shortly before your membership starts

  • We do reserve the right to withdraw individual membership or the service as a whole at any time

  • Full details regarding the garden waste club are available on our website: garden waste club terms and conditions. Once you’ve signed up you have a 14 day cooling off period

It’s really simple to sign up…
