How much will it cost?

The annual subscription charge is £35 per licence. Each bin must have a licence. There is no charge for the bin - existing bins will be used. There are no concessions.

When is the service starting?

1 April 2017, but subscription registration opened on 1 February 2017. You can register online here.

The last collections of 2017 for garden waste will be the week commencing 27th November. The service will resume in 2018 the week commencing 5th February.

Garden waste licences will be delivered within 10 working days and residents are advised to attach the licence to the green wheeled bin before the chargeable collections start on 1 April 2017. If you have not received your licence in this time please do not hesitate to contact ourselves. 

If you are only just joining the service your licences may not arrive in time for your next collection. In the meantime please affix a note to the top of your green wheeled bin reading "Licence in post" and present the bin on your collection day as normal. A bin not displaying a licence will not be collected.

Please note the cable ties provided are not standard cable ties. To use, insert the loose end of the tie through and lock like a buckle and pull. Please refer to the rear of the letter accompanying your licence for detailed instruction. 

Do I need to opt out? What happens if I don't want to subscribe? 

There is no need to opt out. Your green wheeled bin will not be emptied after 1 April 2017 and you will be responsible for disposing of your garden waste. It is not acceptable to place garden waste in your black bin.
